Mark Hughes thinks Stanley are ready for League Two leaders Doncaster despite a disrupted week.

The Reds should have been in action on Tuesday, only for the game with Cambridge United to be postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

But the defender believes everyone is primed and ready for the tricky trip to the Keepmoat Stadium.

“We’ve got enough games behind us, we’ve got a good level of fitness so it’s about building for Saturday now. The games come thick and fast at this time of year, there’s no time to look at the past. It’s not the first time a game has been called off in my career and I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last.

“I think if you ask any footballer they all like Saturday-Tuesday schedules because the training takes care of itself and we all like that.

“I remember playing Doncaster on the opening day of the season and I thought they were a good side then even though we beat them. It could have gone either way and I remember Aaron Chapman saving a penalty early doors.

“They’ve got a great squad, they score lots of goals and they have a good manager who knows the league well. They’re up there for a reason and we know how hard it will be.

“We’d all love to be able to put a finger on why we seem to do better against the top sides. It’s been a funny season in that respect. Against the top seven or eight we’ve done pretty well and it seems like it’s been the lower clubs that we’ve slipped up against.

“We’ve been away to some big clubs and put in good performances plenty of times so we’ll be looking to do that again. Doncaster have a great home record but I remember Morecambe going there and getting a point so I don’t see why we can’t go there and get a good result.”
