Kings Lynn Pre-Match News
Gresley manager Gary Norton will be hoping that keeper Gary Hateley will be fit enough to face Kings Lynn Town in the FA Vase at the Moat Ground - 3pm.
Hateley had to be replaced at halftime by Jordi Gough in the midweek win over South Normanton Athletic in the Derbyshire Senior Cup with what was first thought to be a fractured collarbone. However, after a check in hospital it has proved to be deep bruising and is rated as 50-50 for arguably Gresley's biggest game of the season against the Vase favourites.

Norton does have Darren Keeling to call on in the event of Hateley failing to recover in time. Alex Britton is still some way off due to knee injury.
One player definitely missing will be Kyle Bryant who needed seven stitches in a leg wound also picked up in the midweek game. Bryant could be out for several weeks.

Tom Betteridge and Gareth Langford are both doubts due to a virus along with Matt Hill who is recovering from an ankle injury.

Michael Nottingham as also been suffering from a virus but should return to the squad.

Midfielder James Jepson has delighted Norton by turning down offers from two Evo-Stik clubs. Norton said: "One of the clubs was offering ridiculous money in terms of wages and a signing on fee, but I'm delighted to say he has agreed to stay with us."

Gresley from: Hateley, Keeling, T Betteridge, Barrett, Nottingham, Gough, Spencer, Jepson, Lyons, Langford, Goodfellow, Oliver, Turville, Hanslow, Hill, Barrow, Dillon.
