Notts County manager Kevin Nolan has stressed that each of his players will have a chance this weekend to earn a starting XI spot in their League Two opener against Colchester United.
The first team travel to Luton Town on Saturday, while some senior players are also expected to feature at Carlton Town on Saturday in their final pre-season matches.
The Magpies will open their campaign against the U's at Meadow Lane on August 4 and Nolan wants all of his charges to be "selfish" in their pursuit of a first-team berth.
“There’s still plenty to play for,” Nolan told the official club website. “I don’t know what’s going to happen between now and next week.
“Football changes minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour. This will be a massive 90 minutes for them.
“I’ve told everyone to be selfish to make sure they’re ready come Saturday week because they never know, they could get that call.”
