Eight out!
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers could be shorn of eight players as they relive one of their great moments against Mersysiders Knowsley United at the Moat Ground tomorrow (3pm).
The sides fought out a titanic FA Vase fifth round tie at Knowsley in Gresley’s march to Wembley last season, the Moatmen emerging 5-4 victors after extra time.

Holidays take five players – Richard Denby, Kieron Smith, Paul Acklam, Scott Elliott and Ryan Venning – out of action.

Striker Brian Beresford is also out with an ankle injury and Neil Lovell is doubtful with a pulled muscle.

Manager Frank Northwood said: “We had a fantastic game with Knowsley last season. Their manager said he felt we were the best non-league side they had met and I would say they were the best side we met in the competition – and that includes Guiseley.”
