Jackie McNamara will use the next five days to decide the fate of his Partick Thistle trialists.
The Firhill manager saw his side slip to a 2-0 defeat against Blyth Spartans on their return to match action.
Trialists Kieran Brennan, Jack Boyle, Aaron Sinclair and Ian Cameron were given the chance to impress, and McNamara hopes the coming days will provide him with answers as he attempts to strengthen his squad.
He said: "It is hard to judge them on just that game. The pitch wasn't the best, having a lot of sand on it. It is difficult to judge players so early in pre-season and on their first game in a new team.
"This will be a big week for me in terms of looking at what we have got and how we are going to go forward.
"We have the bounce game with Fleetwood this Saturday and that will give me another chance to look at the players. We will sit down this week and see where we are."
Defeat at Croft Park was a disappointing end to a productive first week for Mac and his squad.
With time running out to Thistle's first competitive action against Stenhousemuir on July 23, McNamara has to work quickly ahead of his first season in the dugout, but he was pleased with their work down south.
"They worked hard. It is not often you get a game in the first week," he said.
"We did a lot of good exercises, the boys worked hard and everyone enjoyed it.
"It is important we have that spirit in the group and everyone enjoys what we are doing. We were living with each other for the week and working hard for each other. I think it was a really good exercise for us."
