Colwyn Bay pre-match news
Skipper Andy Simpson is back in contention after serving his three game ban. Midfielder Mickey Lyons is also back in the squad. Lyons missed the midweek trip to Eastwood Town due his selection for the Futsal England team's recent visit to Lithuania.
Defender Gary White is suspended for tomorrow's game so Nathan Tate will cover in the back line.

Gavin Saxby gets the nod for the keeper's shirt after manager Gary Norton decided to keep faith in him after the midweek game. Said Norton: "Gavin was very down after the Eastwood game and he knows he had a mad fifteen minutes, but we have tried to pick him up. I have said before that we would not axe a goalkeeper after one bad game, but Gavin will be under pressure tomorrow."

Striker Aaron O'Connor has seen no reaction from his ankle after completing seventy minutes in midweek so on-loan Eric Graves will have to settle for a place on the bench in what is likely to be his last appearance in a Gresley shirt.

Midfielder Tony Hemmings' season looks to be finished as he's been diagnosed with having cruciate ligament and cartilage damage. His worst fears were confirmed after seeing a Hartlepool specialst who said he would need an operation to repair the damage. This means that midfielder Nicky Carter could be brought back from his loan spell at Leek Town at the end of the month.

Gresley from: Saxby, Davies, Tate, Millns, Soar, Slater, Lyons, Gray, Barrett, O'Connor, Holmes, Edwards, Simpson, Graves.
