Ryan Austin’s men will be looking to continue an impressive vein of form after their emphatic 5-0 win away to Lincoln United last week.
Colne currently sit 16th in the BetVictor Northern North West League, however are in a similar situation to the Grove as they’ve only played a few league games; having an impressive cup run in the process.
The Lancashire outfit were on the brink of qualifying for the First Round of the FA Cup, but lost 5-0 Gateshead in the fourth qualifying round.
Gaffer Ryan Austin has said he won’t draw comparisons to the Grove’s fixture against Gateshead heading into the clash.
“ It wasn’t a 5-0 game so we won’t draw comparisons, we’ll treat them with respect and look to get through. We’ve had similar campaigns as they’ve not got going in the league like ourselves. I know their manager well and I’m looking forward to the game”
Austin also spoke about shot stopper Dominic Kurasik re-joining the club.
“I’m glad Dom’s back as that now means were lucky to have 2 excellent keepers fighting for the number 1 spot. He’ll be in the squad for the game on Saturday.”
Finally, the Gaffer spoke about how far the team could go in the FA Trophy this year.
“We’ll take it one game at a time and we’ve been lucky to have home draws but we have done well in those games. It’s a competition we take serious and look to go as far as possible”
