Kendal pre-match news
Gresley Rovers manager Gary Norton will name an almost unchanged starting line-up for tonight's long trip to Cumbria.
Tom Betteridge is the only player missing due to a hamstring injury. Norton said: Tom is just not fit enough to play. We had to take him off during the second half of the last couple of games and it will be touch and go whether he will be fit enough for Friday's game."

The biggest problem for Norton is who will fill the subs bench. Skipper Andy Simpson is working in London and does not know whether he will be able to make the trip or not. Midfielder Carl Slater is also a doubt after fracturing his wrist at work although if allowed to he will play some part.

Norton said: "Carl has a soft cast on his wrist at present and if the referee allows it he will play some part in tonight's game. However, Carl has said that he will take the cast off if necessary and have another one put on tomorrow - that's the sort of lad he is."

Tony Hemmings and Matt Moran have been put on standby even though they are not fully fit because the reserve team player who are eligible to play are either injured or not able to get time off work.

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