Bamber Bridge boss Jamie Milligan is expecting a huge test for his side when they take on in-form Gainsborough Trinity at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium on Saturday.
Trinity have won six out of their last 10 games in the NPL Premier Division and sit two points and two positions ahead of 13th-placed Brig in the table.
And after Brig were narrowly defeated by league leaders South Shields last weekend, Milligan says this weekend’s clash will be another good challenge.
He said: “I know their manager Curtis Woodhouse, I played with him when we were younger.
“They’re on a great run themselves, they’re up there in the form table, but it’ll be another great test for the lads.”
