Weekend loan preview

by Ashley Houghton

Knott and Laidler set for action.

Billy Knott will look to continue his fine start to his loan spell with Wycombe Wanderers as the Chairboys head to the north east to face Hartlepool United in League Two.

Knott has started all three of Wanderers’ games since he moved to Adams Park and the Canvey Island-born midfielder has sparked an upturn in fortunes with two wins and a draw.

A win at Victoria Park against Pools could see Wycombe move into the play-off places.

Elsewhere, Jordan Laidler’s Chester will look to build on their cross-border derby victory over Wrexham when they host Dartford in the Skrill Premier.

Last Saturday’s win on the Welsh border was the Blues’ first of the campaign, after five straight defeats, and a win at the Deva Stadium this weekend could pull Neil Young’s side out of the relegation zone.
