Clarets travel to AFC Sudbury today

Football: AFC Sudbury entertain Chelmsford City this afternoon and Clarets' boss Glenn Pennyfather could use the trip to Suffolk to take another look at locally-renowned striker John Frendo and young centre-half Ryan Carolyn after the pair impressed during the midweek 1-1 draw with Ipswich Town at Melbourne.

City's Head Coach received rave reviews on the players from colleagues in the game prior to their appearances in Claret on Wednesday night and they are likely to feature alongside more new faces as City aim to finalise their squad in their penultimate friendly match. Frendo is formerly of Hendon, Harlow Town and Ware, while Carolyn was recently released by Coca-Cola Championship side, Crystal Palace.

A potential absentee from the game, however, is midfielder Dave Rainford who required stitches in a face wound sustained against Ipswich, while Ricky Holmes' bruised ankle from the same match will be reviewed prior to kick-off. Anthony Cook's appearance in that encounter, though, will act as welcome proof that his own minor knee concern is not considered too serious.

City last met the Yellows in a Third Round Ryman League Cup tie in November 2007 when Sudbury caused a 2-1 home upset.
