Gateshead Team News

8 January 2015

Carl Magnay is set to face his former club Gateshead in the FA Trophy on Saturday after recovering from injury.

Town boss Paul Hurst has confirmed that the defender has been in training all week ahead of the second round tie and he is expected to be included in the sixteen man squad to face the Heed.

Scott Neilson, who had returned to training after limping out of the Macclesfield game, limped out of training today and is a doubt for the visit of Gary Mills' side.

Toto Nsiala is available again after serving a two match suspension after totting up 10 bookings. 

Loanee Ollie Palmer is available after his parent club Mansfield gave the Mariners permission for the player to play in the competition. 

The Town boss has again hinted that he will play a strong side in the competition. Speaking on Mariners Player, he said: "I want to play a team that I think will win the game.

"It's been nice to get back into a more normal training routine this week. We've worked hard and I'm looking forward to the game." 

Tickets for Saturday's FA Trophy tie are just £10 and £5. Kids can also watch the game for just £1 - when accompanied by a paying adult. 

If the scores are level after 90 minutes the tie will go to a replay at the Gateshead International Stadium on Wednesday night.
