Buxton pre-match news
Keeper Mark Sheils, defender Richard Wardle and striker Liam Hebberd have all recovered from their injuries and will be included in the squad for tomorrow’s FA Cup preliminary round game against Buxton at the Moat Ground.
Gary Norton his hoping his side will find the form that's been missing so far in performances this season.

“It’s a bit of a no win situation tomorrow,” said Norton. “We are expected to beat a side from a lower league but it will be a tough match. They are second in the Northern Counties East League and will fancy their chances against us.

“They are a big physical side and my concern will be whether my players are up for it. If we allow Buxton to play their own game they will out battle us and beat us.

“This game, although important, is a bit of a hindrance as we’d like to get our league form sorted out and get some new faces in.”

Hebbered, who impressed in the first league game after coming on as a substitute, will play in a protective cast on his hand if he is selected.

Rovers from: Sheils, Bluck, Tate, Bourne, Wardle, Smith, Cheetham, White, Slater, Barrett, Gray, Hebberd, Moran, Kitching, Timms, Kidson.
