"They won on Saturday, they've got a new manager and they're looking for that new manager bounce," Wild said.

"They're another good footballing side if they still play the way they have been.

"We're looking for another good football match on Tuesday but we've got to go and do what we did on Saturday, be tactically spot-on and impose ourselves on them."

When asked if Town go into the game expecting to win, Wild said: "I would never say or disrespect any team in this league.

"We've got to be going out there to impose ourselves on them, and see where that takes us."
