Willenhall Town Pre-Match News
Gresley could clinch the Midlands Football Alliance title with a win against bottom club Willenhall Town tonight at Noose Lane - 7.45pm.
Three points will see them four points clear of the chasing pair of Coventry Sphinx and Westfields with just one game remaining after tonight.

Manager Gary Norton is determined his side perform in a professional way despite their opposition shipping in 138 goals this season. He said: "I don't think anyone would have thought we'd be in this position a few weeks ago. We've got to make sure we don't mess up.
"It's the most ideal position to be in, but you've just got to look one place above Willenhall at Atherstone Town, who we dropped points against. We've got respect for everyone we play, but if we can't do the job we don't deserve to win it."

With almost a full squad to choose from Norton will have to make some difficult choices for tonight's game. Both Royce Turville and Gareth Langford have made rapid recoveries from their injuries and are both available. Also available is midfielder Mickey Lyons who has now completed his three game suspension.

Jamie Barrett is a doubt after succumbing to a long standing groin injury on Saturday and Matt Hill is out due to what has now been revealed as a leg fracture.

Gresley from: Hateley, Barrett, T Betteridge, Gough, Strzyzewski, Nottingham, Jepson, Spencer, Holmes, Oliver, Massingham, Hanslow, Goodfellow, A Betteridge, Turville, Lyons, Langford, Slater.
