Prescot Cables manager Kevin Lynch has played down the magnitude of their clash with Widnes.
The two sides met earlier in the season with Dave Dempsey’s side coming out on top thanks to a John McGrath goal.
In recent matches, Lynch’s side have managed to go from looking doomed to within an earshot of safety.
Their four-match winning run came to an end against Mossley as Sam O’Halleron’s opener came to no avail as Mitch Allen saw red.
Ahead of the clash, Cables added Bristol Rovers youngster Jed Ward on a one-month loan as emergency cover for the suspended shot-stopper.
Going into their trip to the DCBL Stadium, Cables are looking to move out of the relegation zone with the gap from safety just two points.
“We were struggling with a few injuries, it was one of them sort of games [against Mossley] the travel is always difficult,” Lynch told Off The Park.
“Mossley always a difficult place to go, if they apply themselves how they have been, it’ll be a decent game against Widnes, we’re looking forward to it.
“It’s been a nice break, gives us that opportunity to recover.
“The lads are in a good place at the moment, they were disappointed with the defeat but it shows how far we’ve come going to Mossley and coming away disappointed with the defeat.
“The lads know it is about the game and not the occasion, they’ll be well adverse to that, the majority of the players now didn’t even know the players who used to be at Prescot [who now play for Widnes].
“I think they’ve had some excellent results of late, they’ve picked up as well as we have. They’re well-organised, it’ll be a tough game but with the pitch it’ll suit how we want to play.
“We’re all ready and prepared for them.
“[We’re looking for the players to] Apply themselves well, stick to the game plan and enjoy it. Nothing to fear.”
