The fixture was selected to mark the 125th anniversary of the Football League and sees the oldest club visit the oldest ground in the league.

Kiwomya, ahead of his first full season in charge, has no problems for the game. Captain Dean Leacock and fellow defender Mustapha Dumbuya were merely rested from the last pre-season game against Ipswich to make sure they were ready.

As well as Dumbuya, Kiwomya has five more summer signings - Malcolm Melvin, Andy Haworth, David Bell, Danny Haynes and Mark Fotheringham - who are hoping to make their debuts.
