The Lancashire club provide the opposition for Town’s first home match of the 2017/18 Sky Bet League Two campaign.

John Coleman’s side opened with a 3-1 over Colchester United and followed up with an impressive victory over Championship outfit Preston North End.

Way knows what to expect from the visitors and anticipates a good test.

“It’s not an easy game but every game is winnable,” he told iFollow Glovers.

“We’ve played them a few times now. They’re good technically, on the ball and try and play between the lines.

“Their full-backs get high and wide, their wingers like to get crosses into the box and they’ve got Jackson up front who has a lot of power and pace so will be looking to stretch us in behind.

“Every team has their own threats but we’ve got to put in a performance we feel is our game which I saw throughout pre-season.

“We have to make sure we show togetherness, put a good, high-energy performance in in front of our home supporters and get points on the board because that’s the most important thing.”
