Rushden have been in the wars recently to favourable effect to ourselves. Against Histon on Saturday they had two players sent off, Curtis Woodhouse and Lee Tomlin, and substitute Marcus Kelly received a broken nose within minutes of entering the field.
Add in the missing Daryl Clare with a broken jaw and they should be a much depleted squad. No chance! as soon as a player can't play they go out and sign another.
That happened last week when they signed the temperamental Leon Knight, after his release from Wycombe, as a temporary replacement for Clare. It'll be temporary because once he falls out with his new best friends he'll be off elsewhere.
They also have defender Phil Gulliver doubtful for the game.
We should be injury free after a great double comeback at Burton. Mark Yates is trying to get Keith Lowe and Lee Baker on longer terms and there could also be a new face in before Saturday morning - how many times has that been said and proved to be wrong.
With our history against Rushden being quite good I'm expecting a positive result for us from this game. Positive could mean one point or all three but I can't really see us losing.
