FC Halifax Town boss Neil Aspin says he is looking forward to testing his players against two Championship sides this week.

Town welcome Blackburn Rovers reserves to the Shay tomorrow (3.0) before hosting a Bolton Wanderers Xi on Wednesday (7.45).

Ahead of the Rovers clash, Aspin said: “I’m more concerned with what we’re doing than the opposition. All games are a test in pre-season but there are a couple of things I want to look at on Saturday.

“If they bring a few players people might know it’ll be nice but they’ll be doing the same as us and looking towards the start of their season and giving games to people who need it. It’ll be a mixed tea, but they’re going to have quality,” he said.
