Rovers' quick change

Gresley Rovers boss John McGinlay will make changes to the team that drew 2-2 at home to Cirencester on Tuesday for tonight's trip to title-chasing Tiverton Town (7.30).
A run of eight games in 18 days means the Moat boss is having to make full use of his playing resources, with injuries and work commitments also eating into his squad.

Goalkeeper James Lindley is ruled out with an ankle injury, but deadline day signing Mark Sheils was told before Tuesday night's game that he would make his debut tonight.

The extent of Lindley's injury is still not known as the doctors are waiting for the swelling to go down, and it will be Monday before he knows if his season is over.

Of those who started on Tuesday, Michael Forsyth, Barry Woolley, Ritchie Gardner and Neil Kitching will not be involved tonight.

Matt Warren and Carl Middleton, who were on the bench against Cirencester, are drafted in to the starting line-up, as is midfielder Mark Peters after suspension and striker Shaun Bedward, who has recovered from a foot injury.

McGinlay knows his side has a difficult task on their hands against a side that beat Rocester 5-0 at Hillsfield on Tuesday, but hopes the players drafted into the side will take their chance.

"Tiverton are a very good side and will be full of confidence," said the Moat boss, "But football is a funny game. I just hope the players coming in will take their chance and respond 100 per cent. I am sure Tiverton will make a few changes as well, but our performances have improved recently and there is no reason why we can't get a result."

Gresley from: Sheils, Roberts, Middleton, Warren, Broadhurst, Wardle, Peters, Grant, Tucker, Coates, Bedward, Sangha, Dennis, Cheetham, Kearns.

Gresley's youth team beat Willenhall Town 3-0 last night (Wed) with two goals from Matt Moran and one from Carl Timms.
