Adkins - in quotes
"We've got a young squad so teams will be mixed and playing in different positions. We've also got Wycombe, and other local games - we didn't want the supporters to travel too far.

"And we've got Swansea at home, they showed last year what a good side they are, that'll be a good game for the supporters to come down to. Ultimately we're trying to build up to the first game of the season, that is our focus."
