Hednesford pre-match news
Gresley Rovers go into this FA Trophy 3rd Round match without two defenders.
Matt Smith is suspended and Jamie Hood is cup tied. Manager Gary Norton could possibly play Andy Cheetham and Leigh Everitt in central defence.
However, Norton has said he could spring a surprise and play Steve Lenagh defence. "He has played at centre half in the Conference and we are well aware that Hednesford have Steve Anthrobus a big striker who wins balls in the air.

"When we beat Hinckley in the last round we had a makeshift defence and had to play three at the back as we only had three fit defenders and none of those was a recognised centre half.

"But, if we play at our best and they have a bit of an off day, then we will have a chance. We have got to make sure we are at the races or we won't get anything out of the game. A draw would be a good result, but we are going there looking to win it.

"The pressure is on Hednesford because they are a Premier side and at home but hopefully we can use that against them."

Rovers from: Belford, Haynes, Wardle, Everitt, Cheetham, White, Doughty, Holmes, Slater, Barrett, Alexander, Lenagh, Francis, Mackenzie, Sylla, Liburd. Clarke (gk).
