Recent signing Abdul Osman should be ready for the weekend Capital One Cup opener against Hartlepool United.
The 25-year-old suffered a knock to his shin and ankle during the latest friendly draw with Tamworth and had to be replaced.
But he appears set to recover in time for this coming weekend, although he wasn’t expected to be involved for the final pre-season friendly against Barnsley at Gresty Road tonight (kick-off 7.45pm).
Otherwise, fellow midfielder Luke Murphy successfully came through the Tamworth game, while AJ Leitch-Smith (toe), Matt Tootle (groin) and Kelvin Mellor (ankle) should all be training this week.
