Frank says: I got it wrong.

Gresley boss Frank Northwood saw his side pegged to a 2-2 draw by West Midlands League leaders Stourport Swifts on Saturday then admitted: “I blundered.”
Dismissing Stourport as ‘not that good a side’ Northwood confessed: “Carl Rathbone asked me to pull him off after 20 minutes of the second half because he was feeling under the weather.

“Looking back now I admit it was a blunder. If I had kept him on I feel we would have won the game.”

Rovers lost their impetus after the disappearance of Rathbone, followed a minute later by that of full back Frank Nuttall with a hamstring injury, and were unable to add to first half equalisers from top scorer Paul Acklam and Rathbone.

Nuttall is doubtful for tomorrow evening ‘s charity match against Stapenhill at the Moat Ground.

Otherwise Northwood expects to have a full complement of players, Dean Page anticipating full recovery from a knee injury and Wembley hero Scott Elliott now raring to go after a leg injury.
