Summer signings Joe Widdowson, Brian Barry-Murphy, Josh Lillis, Jean-Louis Akpa Akpro and Anthony Elding all made their debuts during Saturday's goalless draw at home to Hartlepool.

Highly-rated defender Craig Dawson played the full 90 minutes but continues to be linked with a move away from Spotland.
