Debut day for Nicklin
Story courtesy of Burton Mail
Former Stourbridge defender Carl Nicklin is set to make his Gresley Rovers debut tomorrow as the Moatmen meet Paget Rangers for the fifth time this season (3pm).
On this occasion Rovers again have home advantage as they attempt to avenge their midweek FA Vase defeat with a Banks’s League Cup replay victory.

It will be the third meeting between the two sides in eight days and two Rovers players are still recovering from knocks picked up in two highly-charged Vase battles.

Both Tracey Norton and Paul Acklam are included in an 18-man squad but are rated as doubtful.

Defender John Bottomley has however declared himself fit for the game and could join Nicklin in a re-shuffled rear guard.

Paul Dearn might also find a place in the starting line-up after coming on as sub in Rovers 3-2 Vase exit on Tuesday.
