Prior to the match, there were two topics of conversation, the weather, if the rain would hold off long enough to get the game played, and the return to the starting line-up of club captain Clayton Davis, as it happened neither materialised. The heavy rain forecast turned out to be intermittent showers and Clayton was injured in the warm up and took no part in the match.
Further problems concerned the goal keeper Neal Bussey who also pulled up during the warm up and was replaced by Jordan Harkess.
The injury to C Davis meant that the returning striker Callum Hassan was promoted to the starting eleven to make his second debut for the club and Craig Hodgson was selected to take the place of the suspended Johnnie Davis.
On cue the rain started just prior to the teams coming out although it was not the predicted deluge that we were expecting.
