LEE Martin is the most notable absentee in Paul Jewell’s squad for tomorrow’s pre-season friendly at Luton Town (3pm ko).
Martin missed both matches of the tour of the Netherlands with a thigh injury but returned as a second half sub against Cambridge United on Wednesday where he looked lively.
But after suffering what has been described as a minor strain in his thigh in the last few days, Paul Jewell will once again take no risks.
The strong-looking 20-man party does include Cheick Kourouma, whose contract situation remains up in the air, and Massimo Luongo fresh from their first appearances in a Town shirt this week.
Jimmy Bullard and Nathan Ellington are named after missing out on the stronger-looking squad at Cambridge on Wednesday while youngsters Jack Ainsley, Luke Hyam, Byron Lawrence and Joe Whight are also included.
The full squad is: Ainsley, Bullard, Carson, Chambers, Chopra, Cresswell, Delaney, Drury, Edwards, Ellington, Emmanuel-Thomas, Hyam, Kourouma, Lawrence, Lee-Barrett, Loach, Luongo, Scotland, Stevenson, Whight.
