Big test says Grays manager

Quoted on soccer 365, Grays Athletic manager Mark Stimson hopes to be able to pick from a fully fit squad for tomorrow's game against Hereford United.

"We have no injuries or suspensions and I hope it stays that way. This is a big test for us and the sort of game we were playing to try and get all last season."

20-year-old striker Jamie Slabber may get a game after coming off the bench to help Grays fight back for a point against York last Saturday.

Meanwhile Graham Turner, the Hereford United manager, has spoken to BBC Hereford and Worcester about Grays Athletic.

"The reports we have had about Grays are very complimentary, the way they play. They have stuck six past Gravesend, so we know it will be difficult.

Turner thought both teams would try to get the ball down and pass it.

"It should mean an open game."
