Knights coach Gary Thornton said: “We know Gloucestershire are going to be a bit stronger than they have been in previous weeks, and Steve’s certainly put some structure in them.
“But it was good for us to have a week off last week. Training was exceptional on Tuesday and I’m optimistic we can go down there and get the three points.
“We’ve got a good group of players and a bit of competition for players.
“A few guys have already mentioned that they did us earlier this year, but we can’t really focus on that element of payback – we’ve got to focus on getting things right in our performance.”
