WREXHAM approach Saturday's pre-season friendly against Liverpool with three trial-lists out to impress manager Denis Smith.
Strikers Jon Newby and Kyle Wilson, released by Bury and Crewe respectively, and former Derby County midfielder Mitch Booth are pressing their claims to fill two possible vacancies in the Dragons squad.
Smith was absent from Colliers Park yesterday, instead attending a funeral, but assistant boss Kevin Russell hinted there could be further additions to recent recruits Chris Llewellyn, Neil Roberts, Steve Evans and Ryan Valentine.
"It's fair to say we are looking for one or two more players," he said. "But it is getting to the stage where it looks as though we have adecent strength squad.
"Lee McEvilly apart, the others are working very hard and Lee is also stepping up his recovery work." Arecurrence of abroken bone in his foot prevented McEvilly from participating in Northern Ireland's close-season tour to the United States.
"It's unlikely that we'll push him too hard just yet because we don't want do overdo it," he added. "The main thing is to have Lee fit and raring to go at the beginning of August."
Former Wrexham favourite Juan Ugarte is hoping to resurrect his career with the Dragons - once he has overcome athird knee operation in the space of ayear.
"We are waiting to see how it develops with Juan," said Russell. "Once he is okay he will be training with us and we'll take it from there."
Russell said all the players were desperate for a run-out against Liverpool.
"It's an important game for us in financial terms and it's a high-profile occasion as well for the club," he added. "Although we are unlikely to see too many of their World Cup players, there are still plenty more big names.
"Eventhough it's primarily a training opportunity there will be a competitive element."
Wrexham expect a10,000-plus gate and have reminded fans that no tickets will be on sale on the day of the game.
The ticket office will be open until 6pm tonight and on Thursday, in addition to normal office hours. Tickets are £15 (£7 concessions) in the stands and £13 (£5) in the kop. Ireland.
