Ilkeston pre-match news
Gresley Rovers manager Gary Norton is hoping the flue bug that has hit his team will not spread further and that those already affected will be fit to face Ilkeston Town in the 1st Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.
Norton himself has suffered from the illness that made him miss Thursday's training session with four of his squad, Captain Matt Smith, midfielders Carl Slater, Sean Gummer and Andy Simpson all suffering to some degree.

"I'm waiting to see who recovers, said Norton, "but it certainly has put my preparations into disarray. We will just have to leave it to nearer the kick off to see how people are. I have been in bed for two days and I know I couldn't play tomorrow so we'll just have to see."

Emeka Ejifor is back in the squad after serving his three match ban and could start tomorrow. Reserve team keeper James Pemberton could be included as five substitutes are allowed for FA Cup matches.

Aaron O'Connor is looking forward to returning to the New Manor Ground for the first time since leaving the Robins to join Gresley in the summer.

Gresley from: Belford, Dodd, G White, Matt Smith, Hood, Simpson, Gummer, Barrett, Rowe, O'Connor, Brown, Hebberd, Slater, Matt K Smith, Ejiofor, Pemberton.
