The National League has been difficult for Gary Johnson’s team this season; they have only accrued 14 points from their first 19 games, and as a result, they are currently ranked 23rd.The visitors, who lost 5-1 to Chesterfield at home on Saturday afternoon in the National League, will also come into this game hot off a tough loss.
