Even though we're now confirmed as being in the play off places there's no reason to become complacent because we still have to finish as high as we can to get home advantage for the second leg of the play off games.  Tomorrow sees us visiting Gainsborough Trinity for the first ever time and even though they're battling against relegation it's a game that we still have to win.

In recent weeks Trinity have been trying hard to escape the dreaded drop and in their previous two games they beat Salford 1-0 at home and drew 0-0 at Brackley on Monday.  Even though they're in third place from bottom in the table they can still climb to safety if they win both their remaining games and Worcester City or Alfreton lose both theirs.

We must also do our part in helping Worcester City avoid the drop and so not miss out on possibly having to play them again next season.  Aren't we thoughtful helping out our down at heel neighbours?

For the game Trinity will have a fully fit squad to choose from with only a minor doubt around on loan Greg Tempest and he'll undergo a fitness test before the start.

Following our win at Altrincham on Monday we should have had no new injuries crop up and could start with the same line-up again.  Jared Hodgkiss and Josh Ezewele both missed the game through injury and might be on the bench for the Gainsborough game.  Tyrell Waite was no where to be seen for the second game running so he may be injured.

We played tomorrows opponents for the first time at Aggborough in November and won by a 3-0 scoreline with our goals coming from Arthur Gnahoua, Elton N'Gwatala and Waite.  Hopefully two of those will be back on the scoresheet tomorrow.

I'm not going to make any forecast for the game because it could go either way with Trinity fighting for their lives and us wanting to finish above the others.  The players know that we're in the play offs now but they also know that there's no taking it easy.
