The future of loan stars Jenk Acar and Andy Wright will be sorted out soon.

Their three-month deals at Spalding United are due to end following the trip to promotion rivals Witton Albion on November 12.

They could stay until the end of the season by extending the arrangement between the Tulips and parent club Lincoln City.

However, manager Dave Frecklington also wants to consider the best move for both youngsters in their careers.

He said: “Lincoln are quite happy to extend the loans.

“I’ve spoken to the players who have ambitions to go higher up the pyramid.

Acar was unplayable last Saturday. That was his best performance all season.

“We have already brought in players to replace them as Jack Wightwick came in last week. I wouldn’t be doing my job properly if I didn’t think of what might happen next.

“He was excellent on his debut at Sheffield. He looks a real threat with a great future.

“Wright is a second-year professional and Acar is a first-year player so we have to ask the questions and make sure we make the right decisions for everybody.

“Acar was unplayable last Saturday. That was his best performance all season.”

Meanwhile, striker Brad Barraclough and defender Neal Spafford should be back in action next month.

Frecklington says both players are “coming on really well and not far away” after further treatment from club physiotherapist Richard Lavery.
