CLUB captain Robbie Edwards will play a full 90 minutes in the Reserves at Boston United tomorrow determined to resurrect his Town season.
The 34-year-old has missed the last seven senior matches because of a hamstring injury but is aiming to put himself back in the frame for the upcoming League and LDV double at Blackpool.
While Andy Booth is left out of the team to visit York Street - a clear indication he will replace Junior Mendes at Bloomfield Road on Saturday - tomorrow's Pontin's Division I East fixture is significant for several squad players.
Midfield duo Lee Fowler and Danny Schofield are included, while John McAliskey and Akpo Sodje will be aiming to press their claims up front.
Edwards is due to play at left wing-back with Nathan Clarke's brother, Tom, on the opposite flank.
Nat Brown will slot in as one of three centre-backs while Jacob Giles plays in goal as manager Peter Jackson continues his search for a goalkeeper to sign on loan.
"I'm not risking Steve Yates or Andy Booth because of the first-team commitments on the horizon, especially with Junior Mendes being away with the Montserrat squad," said Jackson, who will be working in the club's Sporting Pride shop on Cloth Hall Street from 11.30 to 12.30 tomorrow.
"It's important the whole squad stay in tune at this stage of the season because you never know when opportunities will crop up, and it will be good for Robbie to get 90 minutes under his belt because it's been quite a while since he played a full game."
Players are working at Sporting Pride all this week.
On Thursday, Efe and Akpo Sodje will be joined by Yates (1.30-3.00). On Friday, it's Clarke and Jon Worthington.
