Lincoln City will look to get back to winning ways this weekend when they face Ebbsfleet United at Sincil Bank.
The Imps lost to league leaders, Wrexham, last time out.
City will be hoping to register three points against the mid-table Kent outfit.
The Imps look like they will have to do without top scorer, Sam Smith, who is doubtful for the tie but have been boosted by the news that Simon Russell is making good progress in his return from injury.
Speaking about the fixture, Holdsworth admitted the part-timers would pose a stiff challenge:
“Ebbsfleet have a tough texture about them,” he said. “They know each other very well and they’ve got some good players. I won’t be worried about them though.”
