Football: Veteran Tankard gets another Rangers run.

Former Port Vale defender Allen Tankard will again feature for Stafford Rangers in tonight's friendly with Crewe Alexandra at Marston Road.

But former West Bromwich Albion striker Don Goodman and ex-Birmingham City winger Jon McCarthy --who both played alongside Tankard in last Saturday's match at Rocester --will not be involved tonight.

Player-manager Phil Robinson has yet to add to the squad which claimed the Dr Martens Premier runners-up spot last season and he is keen to keep his options open over the prospects of several trialists.

'We have got a number of players from all levels who have been with us for pre-season training,' said Robinson. 'There's a lot of decisions still to be made.'

Full-back Tankard, who has more than 500 League appearances to his name, started his career at Southampton before making his name at Wigan Athletic and Port Vale. He spent the last two seasons with Mansfield Town before linking up with Hednesford Town last spring.
