Belper pre-match news
Skipper Andy Simpson could be a surprise addition to the squad for tonight's clash at the Moat Ground against local rivals Belper Town (7.45pm).
Manager Gary Norton said: "Simmo could be a surprise inclusion tonight. Although he dislocated his shoulder at Kidsgrove it popped back in. We sent him for x-rays to check the damage.

"Although his shoulder is still sore and stiff Simmo is the skipper and wants to be involved but the medical staff are a little concerned and we won't jeopardise aggravating the injury."

Left back Gary White missed the visit to The Stan Brown Stadium on Saturday due to an ankle injury but as asked to be considered although his ankle is strapped up and he's taking painkillers. It is likely, however that Nick Carter will retain the left back slot after an impressive display on Saturday.

Defender Matt Smith has been drafted into the squad and could be on the bench if either Simpson and White are left out.

Chris Brindley will probably partner Matt Millns in the centre of defence. Striker Paul Edwards, who scored the winner at Kidsgrove, looks set to retain his place up front.

Gresley from: Whittle, Davies, Carter, Millns, Brindley, Holmes, Barrett, Slater, Betteridge, Edwards, O'Connor, Gomm, Lyons, Simpson, White, Smith.
