Preview: North Ferriby United (A)

7 July 2017

United kick-off their pre-season run of friendly matches with an away clash at North Ferriby United on Saturday, 8th July (3pm kick-off).

It is the first of six warm-up games for Graham Alexander's side, with the trip to face the Villagers providing Iron fans with a first chance to see newcomers Cameron Burgess, Matt Gilks and Rory McArdle in action.

Luke Williams is set to miss the game, who is now back running as he continues to step up his recovery from a hamstring injury picked up while on loan at Northampton Town towards the end of last season.

Elsewhere, Duane Holmes is a doubt with a twinge in his thigh. Alexander says it's not a serious injury though, and the winger will only miss out as a precaution if he does.

The Iron boss is waiting on 'two or three' others, who will be assessed in training on Saturday morning before he decides whether to involve them in the friendly.

He is planning to play two different sides in each half of the match.

It's pay on the gate only for Iron fans, with ticket details available to read here.
