Chester said: “We wrapped him in cotton wool last week but he’s trained this week and he’ll be fine for the weekend.
“The main priority at the end of last season was to bring in an established half. We went into a number of games last year with only one recognised half-back.
“I’m looking forward to seeing how that spine works, he should take a lot of pressure off Jacob Miller.”
Miller says the arrival of Lino will free him up to play his normal attacking game.
He said: “Hopefully you’ll see me run the ball a little bit more and not worry about organising things around me.”
Chester is hopeful of being close to full strength despite picking up injuries training on an artificial surface.
He added: “We’ve had quite a few soft-tissue injuries on the 4G pitch. We’ve had a couple of calves and a couple of hamstrings.
“We’re training on a new surface and that probably had a big effect on players’ tolerance levels.”
