Belper pre-match news
Gresley Rovers manager Gary Norton looks set to hand reserve team keeper Tom Allan his first team debut with Tommy Whittle being rested due to a slight groin strain picked up at Skelmersdale on Saturday.
Defender Dan Douglas is a doubt having not fully recovered from an ankle injury and Andy Simpson is out after a recurrence of a knee injury.

Also missing is defender Gary White who hobbled off the pitch with a hamstring injury during the abandoned cup game at Matlock.

Striker Aaron O'Connor will not be risked after recovering from an ankle injury also picked up at Matlock.

However, striker Liam Hebberd is eligible to play.

Norton could use this opportunity to try out a different formation and may look at one or two things, which could benefit the team later on in the season. He could go with a back three and push Nick Carter further forward while if they go with a four Colin Hoyle could be rested.

Gresley from: Allan, Groves, Hoyle, Millns, Woolley, Carter, Slater, Ridgway, Smith, Hebberd, Edwards, Hemmings, Gadsby, Douglas.
