Captain out of friendly openers with slight ankle injury
Captain Matt Tootle is unlikely to feature in the club’s pre-season fixtures at Norton on Friday evening and at Nantwich Town on Sunday after rolling his ankle. The injury is not serious and last season’s Player-of-the-Year is expected to be fit for the trip to Leek on Friday 18th July or the following day at Chester.
Vadaine Oliver (ankle) has trained this week and looks to have put his own ankle problem behind him.
John Johnston has been struggling with illness and is unlikely to feature in our opening double header this weekend.
Harry Davis (knee) and Ryan Colclough (Hernia) remain long-term absentees.
