In this Big Match Preview, keeper Jake Eastwood talks to us about his busy time at Harrogate, and Town boss Paul Hurst looks ahead to Tuesday’s home game against Leyton Orient. Paul also tells us whether he thinks that his side are equipped to cope with eight games in the month of March. 

On the players maintaining their belief, Hurst said: "There is a mental challenge to it, definitely. After Saturday it felt like they were quite low and down. I get that and I would be upset if they weren’t hurting. I had some time when I was down yesterday – but you shake it off and get ready to go again. That’s life.

“I myself am quite balanced. That’s ok when things are going well but then when it’s not, people think you don’t care, which is obviously far from the truth.

“You want people to have emotions, but at the same time not let them overtake when it is on the negative side.

“All that I can ask of the players is that they work extremely hard and give everything in terms of their own individual performance. Then you are hopeful you can get the bits of luck going your way.”
