Moat checklist

Boss John McGinlay will make a late check on injuries and availability before finalising his squad for Gresley Rovers' weekend Dr Martens Western Division double-header.
The Moatmen entertain high-flying Tiverton Town tomorrow (Sat 3pm) before travelling to face Weston-super-Mare on Sunday (3pm).

The moat boss has a number of injury worries but one player definitely ruled out is defender Michael Forsyth.

Forsyth, on loan from Burton Albion until the end of the season, picked up an ankle injury in Wednesday night's 1-0 defeat by Solihull Borough.

Said McGinlay: " Forsyth went for an x-ray yesterday. Nothing is broken but we will have to wait for a couple of days before the injury can be a assessed properly."

Striker Neil Kitching and defender Ritchie Gardner also picked up slight knocks on Wednesday.

McGinlay will be hoping strikers Simon Tucker (ankle) and Shaun Bedward (knee) will be available again after missing the Solihull game, while defender Danny Verity could also be ready for a return.

McGinlay himself has reported no reaction after coming on as a substitute on Wednesday for his first appearance since being ruled out with a calf injury at the end of February.

McGinlay has insisted he will play his strongest available team for tomorrow's Moat Ground clash, saying: "There will be no holding players back for Sunday's game."

Gresley from: Sheils, Roberts, Cheetham, Gardner, Woolley, Wardle, Warren, Broadhurst, Verity, Peters, Coates, Middleton, Donaldson, Kitching, Grant, McGinlay, Tucker, Bedward.

Gresley reserves visit Hinckley United tomorrow (2.45pm), with striker Mick Sandar named in the squad for the first time since breaking his leg.

Reserves from: Wright, Lees, Evans, Bluck, Lewsley, Bradshaw, Dennis, Allum, Wagstaff, Allsop, Sandar, G Smith, J Smith, Kemp, Timms, Kearns.
