SHAUN Pearson and Scott Brown will face fitness checks ahead of tonight's FA Trophy second round replay at Gateshead.


Both players took knocks in Saturday's 3-1 win against Barnet.


Paul Hurst says that he will assess the two players before naming his side to face the Heed.


He said: "Shaun Pearson got a kick towards the end and Scott Brown also took a whack early in the second half, so I'll have to check on them before I make the decision." 


And the Town boss has reiterated that  the FA Trophy is a competition that he wants to progress in.


Paul added: "We're not going up there tonight just to fulfil a fixture – I stand by what I always say about the Trophy – we want to win it. 

 

"If we don't, fair enough, but I want us to give it everything we can to try and get through to that next round against Wrexham."


Scott Neilson is set to miss out once again with an ankle injury.
