Manager Micky Adams says the club won’t “gamble” on Liam Dickinson and the trialist must prove his fitness before any deal is handed out.
We can’t gamble the club’s money on the fitness of a player who has been out for 14 months…
Dickinson came close to a move to the club last season but ankle surgery saw the transfer scuppered. Dickinson has continued to train with the club during his rehabilitation and was a member of the squad’s first training session of the forthcoming season.
“We need good options up front and if that means we go in with five centre-forwards then we’ll do so,” Adams told the Sentinel.
“Liam was with us last pre-season and unfortunately injuries beset him.
“He knows he has to prove his fitness, and you can’t do that by running around the training ground for a few days.
“We can’t gamble the club’s money on the fitness of a player who has been out for 14 months.”
