The Blues will look to build on Friday’s draw with Kidderminster, as they travel to AFC Fylde for another tough test.
Darren Stephenson, scoring for the third game in a row, and Marcus Dackers had the Blues in command at the Deva – before two goals saw Kiddy fight back to draw. Steve Watson will have been encouraged by his side though, once again proving more than a match for one of the top seven sides in the division.
The Blues boss will be assessing the availability of both Matty Waters, who limped off injured on Friday, and Kevin Roberts – who was a late withdrawal from the match due to illness.
Fylde picked up a point on the road on Friday at Southport, as they look to keep third spot in the table which would guarantee them a home play-off semi final.
Kick off on Easter Monday afternoon is 3pm.
