ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman admits that a number of trialists taken in by the club have a big chance to impress when the club take on Burnley at the Fraser Eagle Stadium.

A number of trialists have played for Stanley in the club’s opening two Pre-Season fixtures at Darwen and Cammell Laird, which ended in a 1-1 draw and a 1-0 win respectively.

And they have a few more chances to impress the management staff at the Fraser Eagle Stadium as they take on Rossendale United tonight and Championship side Burnley a week on Saturday.

“We will have another look at some of the trialists,” said Coleman speaking to the Lancashire Telegraph.

“So far they`ve done okay, but I`ll be looking to whittle them down more before we play Burnley.”

Craig Reid, who was released by League One side Cheltenham Town at the end of last season is thought to be impressing Coleman with his versitility, after spearheading the Reds’ attack against Darwen before switching to a left wing berth last time out.

19-year-old midfielder Jimmy Ryan who has just left Shrewsbury Town after starting his career with Liverpool is also thought to be close to being offered a deal along with former Wigan Athletic defender Peter Moore.
