Russ Wilcox: Hard work ahead

A goal from veteran forward Deon Burton was enough to earn the Iron victory in their penultimate pre-season friendly.

Burton was one of only a handful of senior players involved in the game, with Wilcox opting to test some of his younger squad players.

He was pleased with the performance but felt it should have been more convincing, saying: "The game was tight and hard work was made of it but you have to give Frickley a lot of credit for that.

"They looked a better outfit than they did this time last season. They played 4-3-3 and gave us a few problems at times. It was a really good workout and I was disappointed we didn't get a few more goals."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
