Ilkeston Town pre-match news (part 2)
Aaron O'Connor, Matt Millns and Tony Hemmings will all miss tonight's FA Trophy replay at the New Manor Ground.
Manager Gary Norton said: "We were hoping Aaron would be fit enough to play but his ankle is badly swollen and very painful. He had an x-ray yesterday that has revealed a piece of floating bone as well as a severe sprain. I think he will be out for a couple of weeks.

"Matt can walk on his ankle but it is severely bruised so he will out a similar length of time as will Tony who has tweaked his knee ligaments. Nicky Carter is unavailable because of work commitments so we are really struggling.

Matt Smith has answered Norton's SOS and will play in place of Millns.

Three young reserve team members have been drafted into the squad - midfielder Greg Smith, defender/midfielder Dave Williams and 16-year-old striker Patrick Rowell.

Gresley from: Pemberton, Davies, G White, M Smith, Simpson, Slater, Lyons, Gray, Barrett, Holmes, Edwards, Tate, G Smith, Williams, Rowell, Saxby (gk).
