Midfielder Kieran Glynn returns for Boro at Bridlington tonight

Midfield pair Kieran Glynn and Ryan Watson return alongside centre-back Bailey Gooda, who were all missing for Saturday's 1-0 win over Eccleshill United.

Striker Ryan Blott is nursing a slight hamstring niggle, but is back in the squad for the clash at Queensgate, while Lloyd Allinson returns in goal for Boro after being forced off at half-time on Saturday.

"We've got a few players back for the Brid match, which is important as we are already low on numbers," said Kelly.

"Kieran Glynn and Ryan Watson are back in for us in midfield, which is crucial for us as we need to get enough minutes into them.

"We've also got Bailey Gooda back in the defence, which is another boost as he's been good since coming in.

"Lloyd is fit for tonight after going off on Saturday and Blotty is going to see how his hamstring is but it's good to have him back with us."

Boro boss Kelly will run his eye over two more trialists during tonight's pre-season encounter, but admits time is running out for the club's trialists to impress him enough to still be with the club for their NPL opener at Atherton Collieries on Saturday September 19.

"Time is running out for the trialists to do enough to be staying with us for the new season," insisted Kelly.

"We've got two more coming in tonight so we can have a look at them."
