Five players to watch

He has however been on the bench for every league game this term. The defender is a former Republic of Ireland under-21 international and also featured for Bury last season.

Signed from neighbours AFC Fylde in July, Dion Charles is a winger and current Northern Ireland U21 international. He has signed a two year contract and came through the ranks at Blackpool before joining the Coasters, scoring 18 goals last season. He had attracted interest from the Championship but opted the Cod Army in July.
Another of Uwe Rosler’s deadline day signings was the loan signing of Alex Jakubiak from Watford. The striker has signed for season having previously had spells at Oxford, Dagenham & Redbridge and Braintree. Last season he was a prolific scorer for the Hornets’ under-23 side. He was an unused sub in the defeat to Rochdale on Saturday.
