The League Two Sulphurites hosts League One heavyweights Sheffield Wednesday at the EnviroVent Stadium on Friday evening, 7pm kick-off.
Simon Weaver is in the process of overhauling his squad ahead of the 2022/23 campaign, and although he has already added eight new faces and handed academy prospect George Horbury a professional deal, he is still in the market for further reinforcements.
Two unnamed wingers have been training with Town since they reported back for pre-season and joined them for their recent camp at Loughborough University, while another two players are expected to link up with the squad in time to play some part against the Owls.
One or two may be involved on Friday,” Weaver continued.
“It’s important during these first couple of friendlies that we’re not asking anyone to play 90 minutes, so there will have to be a bit of rotation.
“We need to bring the lads up to speed gradually. We don’t want anyone picking up a knock or to bring on an injury because we ask them to do too much. That’s the last thing we want.
“And, at the same time, it can be a really good opportunity for some of these young lads to go up against very good League One players, test themselves and show us what they can do.”
I expect it to be a decent game. Obviously there may well be some signs of rust because it’s the first game back, but you don’t get anything out of a match that’s played at a snail’s pace. We want to get the lads playing and up to speed.”
