No injuries were picked up from Saturday's win over Carlisle so Micky should have the same squad at his disposal for this fixture

One to Watch

Luke Armstrong

A summer signing, Luke Armstrong made the move to the EnviroVent Stadium from Salford City, and has been in fine form this season, scoring seven times so far in League Two.

After having spells in his youth at Middlesbrough and Birmingham, Armstrong made his professional debut with Cowdenbeath, going onto feature six times in the league. After a successful spell with Blyth Spartans, he made the return to Boro.

The 25-year-old spent two years back at the Riverside, spending time on loan at Gateshead and Accrington Stanley. He joined Salford in 2019, and spent time on loan at Hartlepool last season.

Manager

Simon Weaver

In his playing career, Simon Weaver had spells at Nuneaton, Lincoln, and Tamworth before going into a career in management.

In 2009, he was appointed player-manager at Harrogate, eventually retiring from playing in 2012. Since his appointment, he has taken the side from the Vanarama National North to second place in League Two.

2018 saw the club beat Brackley to win promotion into the fifth tier, with promotion into the Football League coming two years later with a win over Notts County.
