Jamie McGuire is looking forward to renewing acquaintances with Steve Evans when Fleetwood travel to Rotherham this weekend.
Cod Army midfielder McGuire was a part of the Fleetwood side that progressed through the non-league pyramid to earn a Football League debut this season and enjoyed some memorable tussles with the Crawley sides Evans led along a similar path.
The 50-year-old Scot is now in charge at the New York Stadium, with an League Two play-off place that appears to have slipped through Fleetwood's fingers in recent weeks firmly in his sights.
"Steve Evans was at Crawley and won the league when we were in our first year in the Conference," McGuire said.
"He's a big character. We used to have a bit of banter with him - he'd be shouting stuff on to us, he's always on to the referee.
"He did well with his Crawley teams - FA Cup runs, they won the Conference, they got up (to League One) last year and that was basically his team. He's done well again, Rotherham are up in the play-offs.
"It'll be a good game. We've got a good squad, they've got a good squad so it'll be a competitive game. We've just got to make sure we turn up and do well."
