Rovers ring the changes
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Gresley Rovers could make as many as four changes tomorrow as they attempt to put the disappointment of their FA Vase exit behind them.
Tony Moore takes over in goal for the Moat Ground clash with arch-rivals Rocester (3pm) following the departure of Bob Aston.

Manager Frank Northwood could make another change in defence by recalling Frank Nuttall – available after a three-week suspension – in place of Martin Dick.

Northwood has recalled midfielder Ryan Venning from a spell on loan to Newhall United, suggesting the former Burton Albion man could get the nod over Neil Lovell.

And in attack Kieron Smith is virtually certain of a recall following the release of Carl Rathbone.

Rocester manager Alan Beaman is hoping his side can keep up their good record over their rivals.

“We are hoping the match is on. We want to play up at Gresley because we are used to beating them,” he quipped. “They will be wanting to prove something after getting knocked out of the Vase last week and we will be wanting to build on our win last week.”
