Tipton Pre-Match News
Manager Gary Norton is hoping his side can now focus on the league trip to Tipton Town after their fine FA Vase home win against one of the competition favourites Kings Lynn Town last Saturday.
Two seasons ago Gresley reached the Quarter-Finals of the Vase and Norton feels it affected his side's league form has they lost two or three key games around that period.

Gresley have been on a good run recently and are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions but Norton knows his side must concentrate and put in a performance in what will be a difficult game on Saturday at Tipton Town (3pm) who have scored 10 goals in their last two games with five away at Dunkirk in the league and five against Bardon Hill at home in the FA Vase.

Gresley will be without Matt Hill (ankle), Alex Britton (knee) and Barry Woolley (groin) who are all suffering long term injuries.

Goalkeeper Gary Hateley is expected to play although suffering from an injured collarbone with Kyle Bryant also a possibility despite recovering from a badly gashed shin. Tom Betteridge, who has been suffering from a virus, could also return to the squad.

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