Notts County assistant manager Mark Crossley says tomorrow’s match against Rochdale will provide certain members of the squad with a chance to impress John Sheridan.
The Magpies head to Greater Manchester for the second match in this season’s Checkatrade Trophy campaign.
And Crossley is looking forward to running the rule over several players as Notts look to extend their winning run to four matches.
He said: “We’re taking it very seriously. It gives you a chance to utilise your squad.
“There’ll be first-team players put in to prove a point. We’ve got a lot of games coming up and we want the lads to go out there and impress us.
“The manager wants a problem to pick a team for Saturday.”
The Magpies will qualify for the knockout stages with a victory, having already beaten Hartlepool in the group.
And Crossley believes that match was one of the most important of Notts’ season so far.
He said: "The Hartlepool match was the start of something good for us – it got us on a winning streak and it was our first home victory.
“We want to win the game – it’s as simple as that.”
