Doidge celebrates scoring in the last game between the two sides

It’s a return to The New Lawn tomorrow night as Mark Cooper’s side look to make it four wins in succession at home.

This is the first game since the 2-1 victory over Coventry City after Saturday’s trip to Newport County was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Here are all the details you need if you are heading to the match tomorrow evening:

The Facilities

Away fans are invited to watch the match from our West Terrace (standing only), which can hold up to 975 people.

The West Terrace is an uncovered standing terrace at the moment - we have plans to create a covered seating area, but it won't be ready in time for your arrival unfortunately.

That said, we'd advise fans to bring appropriate clothing in case of inclement weather - particularly as The New Lawn is on top of a hill and is exposed to the elements.

On arrival, all away supporters will be welcomed into the stadium via the West Terrace turnstiles, numbers nine and ten.

For away supporters who require wheelchair accessible seating, there are a very limited number available in our East Stand.
