Shepshed pre-match news
Gresley could possibly be without 5 or 6 first team players for this re-arranged game.
Andy Cheetham (dead leg), Ian Bluck (knee), Neil Kitching (thigh) are all missing with Gary White (thigh) very doubtful.

Striker Steve Rutter could be missing and manager Jon Newsome is away on business.

Alan Titterton and reserves team boss Gary Norton will take charge.

Newsome said today: ďIím still waiting to hear from Gary White and from Steve Rutter. Steve has to travel up from London so I donít know if he can make it.

ďI was hoping to have Andy Cheetham back but Iíve spoken to him and his leg is still very sore and I donít want to risk him making his injury worse.

ďIt will be all hands to the pump tonight and considering the injuries we have at present I would be glad to get anything out of the game, but it will be a tough task. Itís not an easy place to go and after what happened on Saturday we could do with a good result, but it is a local derby and it will be tough.Ē

Drafted into the squad are reserve team players Jim Parkinson, Earl Alexander and Nathan Tate joining fellow reserves Matt Moran, Carl Timms and Carl Slater.

Gresley from: Lindley, Moran, Wardle, Evans, White, Bourne, Barrett, Timms, Slater, Gray, Rutter, Peters, Hopkins, Parkinson, Tate, Alexander, Sheils (gk).
