The Vale boss is desperate to boost his squad, but has dismissed rumours linking him with a move for former Wolves and West Brom striker David Kelly, who was released by Motherwell this week after a bust-up with manager Eric Black. Horton said: "We have a lot faxes about available players coming in and we want to have a look at some of these players.
"However, I have no interest in David Kelly.
"I think Steve Brooker and Steve McPhee are an excellent forward pairing and I can't see any point bringing in David Kelly to sit on the bench." Should Bridge-Wilkinson come through tomorrow's friendly unscathed he will be considered for a place in the squad for Saturday's trip to Notts County. However, the midfielder is still some way off a first-team start.
