Sports on the Road: Gresley FC (A) Match Preview

Sports head down to Church Gresley on Tuesday night to take on Gresley FC in the Derbyshire Senior Cup 2nd Round. The two sides have shared many entertaining matches in league, cup and friendly matches over the years and this is sure to be no different with both sides seeing this as a realistic competition to win. However with an FA Trophy tie at Stratford coming up on Saturday it will be interesting to see if McGrath rests any players ahead of the game in Warwickshire at the weekend.

The Moatmen were in action on Saturday as they lost 1-0 at home to Spalding United. Leon Mettam netted in the 80th minute to knock Gresley down to 9th in the East Division table. Sports however were on the end of a 1-0 victory at home to Workington AFC with Nathan Jarman netting inside the second half to move Sports up to 17th in the Premier Division table.

Niall Dorran remains out. Lewis King is still suspended. Tom Burgin is nearly 100% match fit. Everyone else should be avaliable should they be selected. McGrath may see this as a chance to rotate the squad with many of the young reserve and academy player chomping at the bit to impress.

The game is taking place at Gresley’s Moat Ground, Moat Street, Church Gresley, Swadlincote, Derbyshire, DE11 9RE. Admission prices are set at £8 for Adults, £5 for Concessions and Under 16’s and £1 for Under 13’s. Match day programmes as well as hot and cold food and drink will as always be available inside the ground with alcoholic beverages available inside the clubhouse. Parking is severely limited at The Moat Ground. The Moat Ground has a small car park adjacent to it but it does get filled up early on a match day but there is plenty of parking in the area.
