Ahead of Monday afternoon's meeting, U21s Manager Darren Purse previewed the fixture:

"The games are coming thick and fast for the boys at the moment," began Darren. "A lot of it comes down to how they recover from each game.

"We want to get that consistency on a regular basis, which is the goal when you have a side as young as we do.

"It's all part of their development, and we've been on some tough away games of late. We want to be testing them. 

"We've got a few injuries in the side at the moment, but we're looking forward to hopefully getting Owen Pritchard involved soon, as he's been out for a while now. There are a few negatives and positives, so we just need to keep on working for the results."
