I don't think so. We have already lost at home to them in recent weeks after they beat us 3-1 in the Setanta Shield. A meaningless game but one that we should have won and failed to do so miserably.
Now's the time to gain vengeance but in doing so we're going to have to score some goals and, apart from the Stafford Rangers game, they've been in very short supply since James Constable, Michael Blackwood and Justin Richards left the club or went out on loan. Just four goals both home and away in seven games.
Against Exeter we had the lions share of chances during the first half and late in the second but failed to take any of them. We have to start converting the half chance that are falling our way and what better time than to knock a few past Rushden.
We have no injuries following Saturday and the only change we're likely to see is Darryl Knights returning to the starting line-up from the bench at the expense of Gavin Hurren.
Rushden have very few injuries too and following the sharing of the points with York City at Nene Park on Saturday will also go with a similar team to that one. Lee Tomlin is doubtful with a thigh strain.
This is one that we really need to win - how many times have I said that - just to get our own back for that awful display a month ago. I think we'll do it.
Apologies for the lack of a message board, and also a Man of the Match poll, over the weekend. Barring a miracle I don't expect it to be back on air before Tuesday. Sorry but it's out of my control and I can do nothing until the holidays are finished.
