THE CONTEXT

Wealdstone travel to arguably the biggest club in the National League on Friday evening on the back of a thrilling 3-3 draw with Sutton United live in front of the BT Sport cameras, the Stones almost sparked a thrilling second half comeback after Ross Lafayette's double and Jacob Mendy's strike brought them back from 2-0 down at half time to 3-2 ahead, but were unfortunately pegged back when Craig Eastmond scored with the last kick of the game. Notts County produced a stunning fightback of their own away to Chesterfield, winning 3-2 despite trailing 2-1 after 90 minutes had been played.

TEAM NEWS

Moses Emmanuel looks to be a doubt after pulling up early in the Sutton fixture with a quad injury, Connor Stevens also remains weeks away from a return to fitness. New signing Dean Parrett went straight into the squad against Sutton United and played out the last few minutes of the game, he will be available for this fixture.

WHAT WAS SAID?

Dean Brennan: “They're the favourites to win the division, it's a big game and we're looking forward to going there on Friday evening. They're a professional side and will do their research, they've got their scouting departments and recruitment departments to do their work on us, just as we will do the same for them. We've got good young players, we can be naive at times but that's what happens when you have good younger players."

WHO TO WATCH FOR

Michael Doyle: The Notts County captain has a wealth of EFL experience playing regularly in all three Football League divisions throughout his career and is capped at international level for the Republic of Ireland. Aged 39 now, the midfielder still shows the quality that saw him a first team regular at Coventry City, Leeds United, Portsmouth and Sheffield United and he has played every game so far for the Magpies this season. He won their Goal of the Season award last year with a stoppage time winner from the halfway line against Dagenham & Redbridge in the FA Trophy.
