A narrow 2-1 away defeat in the FA Cup was followed by a 3-2 home defeat in the league which saw Town play the majority of the game with defender Jason Field in goal following an injury to James Lambley.

“They are a good side and one of the teams who have impressed me the couple of times we’ve played them,” Collins said.

“We’ve been more than a match for them, so hopefully we can go there Saturday and maybe put things right a little bit.

“We’ll be trying to win the game, no two ways about that.

“We played them away and we were really unlucky, the game could have gone either way and they got a goal right near the end, and when we played them at home we were the better side.

“But that game they scored from a 40 yard free which any normal keeper would save.”

Town beat Sleaford 2-1 on Saturday.
