Russell Slade is expecting to add at least one new face to his squad ahead of the visit of Wigan Athletic on Saturday (3pm). The Town boss has made no secret of the fact that he is looking to bring in a left-sided defender and a striker ahead of the big kick-off on August 5.
On the injury front, Jamey Osborne, as we announced this morning, is going to be sidelined at least until Christmas with knee ligament injury, Akwasi Asante is still recovering from surgery and he won't be available to the Town boss until September at the earliest.
Sean McAllister is also struggling to be fit to face the Latics. The midfielder picked up a knock in pre season but is on the mend.
Russell Slade is again set to utilise his full first team squad on Saturday .
Admission to this final pre season friendly game is £10 - Adults and £5 - Concessions. Tickets are available Online, from the Blundell Park Ticket Office, or payment can be made at the turnstiles.
