Thursday’s opposition is led by former Leicester City, Preston North End and Colchester United centre back Wayne Brown. His side comes into this match after being knocked out of the Premier League Cup 2-0 by Portsmouth on Monday.

As always, the top two sides from the northern table will qualify for the end-of-season Professional Development League Play-Offs against the equivalent southern table sides to crown the overall PDL champion.
