Our next game is live on Sky and that’s a great opportunity for us to spread the word about what we’re doing here.

I have been involved in a few live TV games, including one of the early Sky Sports games, when Bolton visited Lincoln in the FA Cup.

Then obviously there are the play-off games as well and it’s great.

I know we get good coverage locally but we are going to get good coverage on a national/international stage and it is about us spreading the message what we are about and about how professional we are.

But just because there are cameras on us, doesn’t mean we will do anything any different.

We will have a game plan, stick to it and we will get on with it. We will enjoy it and have said that a lot to the boys this season, it’s about enjoying it and enjoying that encounter you are going to come up against.

I know their player-manager Gareth Ainsworth through our mutual links with former club Lincoln and he is a good lad and is always there or thereabouts. He is honest and has a go. His team play the same way.

It will be another testing game and as we’ve seen, everyone has to be bang at it all the time, otherwise slip-ups can happen.
