Iron boss Russ Wilcox is hopeful of a full run-out for his squad in their first friendly of pre-season at Bottesford.

The match takes place at Birch Park on Wednesday night, kicking-off at 7.00pm.

"Hopefully everyone will play a part," Wilcox told

"There are a couple of niggles and bits and bobs that you get in pre-seasons.

"We're in on Wednesday morning and will go through some shape and set-plays regarding the game.

"We're hoping to play two teams in the match - so it will be two sets of eleven in each half if we can.

"It's too early in pre-season to get 90 minutes out of players. Some teams do that but when you do you run the risk of injury.

"The players have put in a lot of hard work running and it's down to the football side now.

"Hopefully they will now build their fitness up through games now."
