Does the naming of Tomlinson suggest we've signed him permanent?

No Macca

Or Roberts which is disconcerting a little

And no trialist in the squad so have we lost interest in Hassan

Hibbs on the bench. Will he get game time or further humiliation?

No Hassan with Basic featuring for the first time tells me we aren't interested. Good to see Tomlinson in again and actually named.

I don't think humiliation enters into it. The fact he is on the bench means he is going to feature but may be carrying an injury? I think with him coming back from his loan and still being around must mean he is going to feature at some point.

Johnson off, replaced by Nicholson. Match updates suggest ankle problem.

Roberts was at Gainsborough laughing and joking with Dents, so probably picked up a slight injury in training. Stop panicking!!

A loss to a side who beat us by the same scoreline 3-4 months ago and today we had a scratch side out due to a few knocks here and there.

No doubt some will come on here and panic but its only pre-season - a fitness, formation, shape exercise with the chance to have a look at a trialist too. Please try think and be rational before going nuts, slag everything off, panic and demand a massive overhaul.

I'm not going to pretend its all rosy and sweep things under the carpet coz I believe we do need to add to the team (a Striker, winger, attacking playmaker) imo. I'm relaxed though. That result is just one of them things.

Enjoy your Saturday.

Pre season friendlies are purely about match fitness and looking at trialists, never ever read anything into the result. Example - we comfortably beat Sheffield Utd last year, who went on to win promotion as Champions......

Sheffield United fans say we lost to Halifax Town who went on to gain promotion!

Its right though about today. fitness, shape, look how a few lads get on. I wouldn't expect anybody to bust a gut at this stage of pre-season.

It's never nice to lose, but you have to factor in a few things here.

1. We've had just one day's rest since Thursday night.

2. Alfreton have recruited fairly well this summer.

3. Every goal we've conceded this pre-season has been with Nicholson in goal, so if we keep Johnson fit then we should be ok.

4. It's only pre-season, much more bothered about the fitness of players rather than results.

So overall, I'm not too concerned about today.

Sam was putting virtually full weight on the ankle after the game and both Kev and Danny Clarke should be available for Tuesday.
