Redditch pre-match news
Manager Gary Norton is facing a choice of striking partners for tomorrow's visit to Redditch with four players, Carl Francis, Simon Tucker, Steve Lenagh and Nathan Jones all vying for the two places.
Defender Leigh Everitt is back in the squad after recovering from a knee injury that has kept him out since the Gloucester game on January 20. He did, however, play a full 90 minutes in the midweek friendly against Stapenhill.

Midfielder Leon Doughty is in the squad after the club received the news that he had picked up only four yellow cards and not five as was thought.

Norton said: "I'm looking for my more experienced players to dig in and help us get through this losing run. Some of the younger players have been feeling the pressure a little in the last three games.

"On paper this will be the toughest game of the season but, having said that, the pressure is off as no one will expect us to get anything out of the game.

"I've been thinking whether to keep faith with my players or make a few changes to try and halt the slump. I'd like to keep faith because our best runs have come when we've had a settled side. However, it's a bit of a catch 22 situation because how long do you leave it? The longer the slump goes on, the more likely I will change things."

Gresley from: Belford, Wardle, Haynes, Everitt, Cheetham, Smith, Hood, Slater, Doughty, Barrett, White, Alexander, Lake, Jones, Tucker, Lenagh, Francis, Clarke (gk).
