Studley pre-match news
Gresley Rovers manager Gary Norton has warned his side against complaceny ahead of the Moat Ground FA Cup clash against Midland Alliance outfit Studley.
Rovers go into the tie as favourites to reach the 1st qualifying round but memories of last season's exit to lower league opposition is still in the managers mind. "We went out at this stage last season in a replay at Buxton so we are determined to avoid a repeat this time round. We know we are not going to be in for an easy ride. We need to be proffesional and make sure that our good start to the season doesnt go out of the window. We've had them watched and they are a useful outfit."

Norton has a full squad to choose from which means that Gary White has managed to shake off an ankle injury picked up in the Bank Holiday win at Kendall. Richard Wardle who came off during last Saturdays win against Stocksbridge with a back injury was an unused substitute against Kendall so will also be fighting for a place in the starting lineup.Midfielder Carl Slater comes into the squad and looks set for a place on the bench and is joined in the 16 man squad by Mark Leeson.

Former Reserve team players Mykey Pryce and Matt Shakespere are expected to be in the Studley squad for the game.
