Manager Jon Brady said the number of minutes the senior players have managed to play over the last few games gave him the opportunity to give some of the club's younger players experience against AFC Rushden & Diamonds.

"It was a great opportunity tonight for us to blood some young players, particularly our youth team," he said.

"I didn’t think we would get as many people 90 minutes as we did in the previous games, so tonight some of the younger players, Millsy (Joseph Mills) and Scotty Pollock got some game time and it is really important that they have also come through with a clean bill of health.

"We’re going away to an army camp tonight for two days, it is not as strict as it seems, it is just about bringing the players together. Our hosts are keen to go full army on us but we’ve spoken to them, it is us coming together as a group, finding our values and standards and a few other things.

"I think it will be a great experience, we have eleven new players in the group and we are trying to really bring everyone closer together. There will be a few challenges there and we will see who comes through those challenges, you will know on Saturday who has come through unscathed!"
