CREWE FC are going goal crazy as they gear up for a revival campaign.
Ian O'Reilly's side have smashed nine goals in two warmup games as they prepare to bounce straight back into Division One after relegation last season.
Staffordshire side Foley Reserves were trounced 6-2 last week before Derbyshire outfit Chellaston were dispatched 3-1 on Saturday.
An away game against Wins-ford United will provide a sterner test tonight, while Barnton will also provide stiff opposition on their own patch on Saturday.
O'Reilly said: 'We have done well and scored a lot of goals, but I won't get carried away because it is hard to judge the standard of the opposition.
'I have had a lot of players at my disposal because we haven't lost any from last season, and we have added more options.
'Paul Brown is only 16 but looks good in midfield, as does Lee Heath. Jimmy Costigan has scored four in two games and could also be an option.
'Some of them are looking sharp and others need some more games. Winsford and Barnton will give us more of an idea where we are at.'
Former Crewe Alex professional Gareth Liddle has turned out in the friendly games and could be a signing on the cards for the club, which will play their games at Reaseheath College next season.
The talented midfielder has drifted out of the game in recent years but could link-up again with Lee Westwood - another former Alex youngster.
Polish left-midfielder Phil Tomaszewski is also training with the club, and three other Poles are due to come on trial. O'Reilly is delighted with the choices available but insists commitment is the key.
He added: 'I want to win the game on Wednesday but I won't field my strongest team. The lads who went missing at the weekend will have to sit it out.
'I just need them to be fair and honest to me. If they want to play then I need to rely on them. I feel we have to dig deep to get out of this division and pull together.'
Crewe FC start their 2005/06 campaign with a trip to Curzon Ashton Reserves on August 13.
