Stratford Pre-Match News
Gresley manager Gary Norton is hoping his side can get back to being mean at the back after conceding nine goals in the last three games.
Although it only led to one defeat at St Ives in the FA Vase it meant that his side dropped two points on Tuesday at the Moat Ground against Kirby Muxloe and had to come back from two goals down at Loughborough.

Saturday's game is important as Gresley hope to keep up the pressure on the top two sides Coventry Sphinx and Westfield who play each other, so a win is crucial for Norton's men.

Tom Betteridge (ankle), Danny Holmes (ankle) Mickey Lyons (dead leg) and Marc Strzyzewski (thigh) all face fitness tests before the game.

Lee Barrow could keep his place at right back after impressing Norton in midweek but Matt Hill has been recalled from loan and is available.

Goalkeeper Tom Gutteridge has gone on loan to Heanor Town as they are struggling at present in that position while Adam Betteridge has gone on loan to Borrowash Victoria to gain match practice .

Gresley from: Hateley, Barrow, Gough, Barrett, Nottingham, Langford, Holmes, Jepson, Spencer, Oliver, Turville, Goodfellow, Hanslow, Hill, Bryant, Gardner, Strzyzewski, Lyons. T Betteridge
