“We’re going up against a proper possession-based team that have unbelievable individual talents,” he said. “People talk a lot about Jarrad at Carlisle – at Crewe they’ve got four or five Jarrads.

“They’re playing regularly and have been playing together for a good two or three years. We’ve got to break that down somehow, and find a way to play our game, which I’m confident we will.”

“They get some magnificent results,” he continued. “I was fortunate to have watched them when I wasn’t working, three or four times, and they often blow teams away in 30 minutes of football - they go from 0-0 to 4-0 in 25 minutes.

“They’ve got know how up front in Porter, great energy and movement in the midfield, and some great lads at the back. It’s basically two attacking full-backs and two strong centre halves with a strong number for.

“We’ve got to look at all of that and consider how we’re going to beat them, or play against them.”
