Notts County manager John Sheridan 'expects a battle' against a 'very physical' Cheltenham side on Saturday.
The Magpies head to Gloucestershire in search of a third consecutive away win and Sheridan is looking for a response from his team following a disappointing home defeat against Accrington Stanley last weekend.
He said: "We go to Cheltenham after a bad result but I expect us to be a lot better on Saturday. I'll try and get the lads as positive as I can and we'll go there to try and win the game.
"Cheltenham are strong and have a good, experienced manager. They’re organised and very physical – they get in your face. It’s a tight pitch there as well, so it’s going to be a really difficult game for us.
"I expect a battle but if we go there prepared and on our game, we can win it."
Sheridan confirmed that Curtis Thompson remains the club's only absentee.
He said: "We’re OK – everyone’s fit and biting at the bit.
"With us losing it might give a bit of belief to one or two players who haven’t had a chance to play.
"Hopefully whichever side I put out will come back with all the points."
Sheridan's full interview is now available to watch on Magpie Player HD.
