Caretaker boss Steve Hodge feels that Notts County will have to be at their best if they are to overcome Coventry City.
Despite a 10-point deduction, the Sky Blues have stormed to mid-table, helped by an unbeaten October.
Although encouraged by the midweek win over Oldham Athletic, Notts are seen as the underdogs at odds of 5/1.
Hodge has stated to the team that they cannot stand around patting each other on the back and must be at 100 per cent for another big fixture.
“We know that we’re in the bottom-four still so we have a lot of things to catch up on,” he told the press.
“We’ve got lots of wins ahead of us hopefully because of the poor start we had to the season.
“Tuesday night was great but it’s history now and we’ve got to move on quickly.
“If the team goes out there and puts a shift in for each then we may get a result.
“If we don’t, it could be hard afternoon for all of us, as we’re playing against a good team who are strong at home.
“That’s always my message to the players – if one through to 11 put a shift in then we’ve got a chance.”
