Weekend loan preview

by Ashley Houghton

Five youngsters vying for first-team action.

Jordan Pickford’s Burton Albion will look to maintain their promotion push as the Brewers travel to Dagenham and Redbridge on Saturday.

Pickford missed last weekend’s FA Cup with Budweiser win over Hereford United but should return as Gary Rowett’s side hope to move into the automatic promotion places with a win.

Also in League Two, Billy Knott’s Wycombe Wanderers host Cheltenham Town as the Chairboys look to return to the play-off places.

Gareth Ainsworth’s side are without a win in four games in all competitions after previously winning three consecutive matches.

Meanwhile, Adam Mitchell will hope to continue his fine start to life at Harrogate Town as the North Yorkshire outfit host Bradford Park Avenue in the FA Trophy third qualifying round.

Elsewhere, Liam Marrs’ Boston United host Redditch United in the same competition, with the teams vying for the £4,000 prize money that comes with progression to the FA Trophy first round proper.

Joel Dixon’s Workington face a tough test when they travel to Hednesford Town in non-league football’s premier competition.
