He said: “Bideford’s manager Sean Joyce is a very good personal friend of mine and a winner through and through and so he will have his players right up for this one.
“So it should be a great advert for football in Cornwall and Devon and with it a large crowd and a great atmosphere.
“With Paul Kendall returning on Saturday and making his mark immediately with a goal for our first win of the season, the journey back from Hinckley wasn’t half so long.
“We go into today’s match full of confidence and virtually a full squad to choose from.
“It’s also a quick return to Treyew for Ben Gerring who played for City last season and of course Matt Hockley was also with the White Tigers a few seasons ago.
“Let’s hope the support today can be as fantastic as our following on Saturday, they sang for the whole of the match and it was like having an extra man on our side.
“All I ask please is for more of the same as you the fan and supporter have a huge part to play in our success. So make sure you come along this afternoon, on a great day for football and shout us on.”
Bideford left it late to salvage a 1-1 draw at home to Biggleswade Town on Saturday, with Craig Duff scoring eight minutes from time.
