Likewise forward Vadaine Oliver has shaken off his own ankle problem to declare himself fit and available for our latest friendly games. Defender George Ray has overcome his groin strain to declare himself fit.
Crewe Alexandra captain Matt Tootle is set to feature in pre-season for the first time after overcoming his slight ankle problem. The right-back missed the club's two opening friendly games at Norton and Nantwich Town after going over his ankle in training but he has successfully returned this week and is sure to feature in our double header against Leek on Friday night and Chester on Saturday.
