Security measures have been tightened and will involve searching all bags. Said Chief Executive Derek Brewer: "It is obviously necessary at this time that we make security a priority issue and we hope spectators will bear with us.

"Our stewards will ensure that people will get into the ground as quickly and comfortably as possible but it will obviously be an enormous help if they come early."

Gates open to 8.45am and the match starts at 10.30am.
