The unofficial derby comes with heaps of pride and expectation, as both teams will be keen to get one over each other and increase their chances of making it past the group stages.
Despite him leaving his goal-scoring boots at home last Monday, Lyndon Dykes comes in at 9/2 (5.50) to find the back of the net for his side as an anytime goalscorer this Friday.
