Town boss Neil Aspin has plugged the gap in his defence caused by injury to Gregg Anderson by handing a trial to Nick Wood.

The 20-year-old began his career as a junior at Sheffield Wednesday and had a loan spell at Sheffield FC before switching to Tranmere Rovers for whom he made 12 senior appearances.

Earlier this season he was on trial at Blue Square Bet Premier outfit Mansfield and helped the Stags keep a clean sheet in a pre-season friendly at the Shay in July.
