Shrimps defender Jacob Bedeau has said he expects a tough test against the Gas on Saturday afternoon.

“We’ve got to think this is our fortress and we can beat anyone here. They’re a good team, they’ve got really good players so it’s going to be a tough one, but we’d like to think at home, that’s where we’re going to make it count.

"They've got a good team spirit, I know one of the players... and he said they were really pulling together.

"They've had a good season, their first season back in League One, so they're going to be a tough test, but we have to come through these tests to stay in this league, and that's what we want to do."
