Barmby Debut Doubtful

The midfielder is still lacking fitness so probably won't be risked. Fellow new signings Delroy Facey, Roland Edge and Leon Cort also sit out still awaiting their debuts as well.

Jon Walters has recovered from a virus so should play, as will Andy Dawson who limped off against Bishop's Stortford with a hamstring injury. Russell Fry, Michael Keane and Jason Price may miss out though.

Peter Taylor commented that he's happy with the progress his players are making over pre-season: "We've had a few more players training over the last couple of days and the lads really have worked hard. They're a great bunch. We're definitely getting there in terms of fitness and the spirit really is top class."
