JOSH Perry is likely to make his Saints bow this Friday.
The Australian international, who joined the club from Manly Sea Eagles, has had his debut delayed by a foot and ankle injuries.
But now he is fully recovered and Saints Head Coach Royce Simmons has pencilled him in for the visit of Rob Powell’s side.
“Josh has been training with the squad over the last few weeks and if he pulls up alright we will throw him into the mix on Friday,” he said. “He is over his ankle injuries and the medical staff are sure he is free from injury.
“He has played for his State and Country, is an experienced forward and he tells me he is good to go – so you have to take that on board.
“Last week I didn’t think his timing was quite right so we held him back. Come game time he reckoned he was fine to play so we will give him a shout this week.
“I think the fans will like what they see. He pushes forward, has good size and can get an offload away. He also consistently carries the ball and makes metres.
“It will take him time to get into the rhythm of the side but all he needs to be worried about is going forward and getting his timing right. He will be in the middle, will knock up about 20 tackles and take the ball forward. That’s all we want of him until he is fully right.”
Saints are offering all fans the chance to bring a friend to the game for just £10.
If you buy a full priced ticket for the game on Friday March 11 (kick off 8pm), then you can buy another for just £10.
Season Ticket Holders can also buy an additional ticket for a tenner too.
Saints are now also increasing the discount for advanced ticket purchases – fans can now get £3 off any ticket bought 48 hours before matchday for the whole of 2011.
If you take advantage of the new pricing offers you can get two full price tickets for the East and South Stands at the Stobart Stadium and you will pay less than the price of two advance ground tickets at Knowsley Road!
For example, two advanced tickets in the South Stand would have cost £23.50 each.
Now, the advanced price is £22 and if you buy one and get one for a tenner, that’s £32 – £3 cheaper than two advance ground tickets at Knowsley Road.
Tickets are now on sale via the online store or from the Saints Shop in the Town Centre.
