The Coasters have named their side to take on Altrincham in the National League at the J Davidson Stadium.

Director of Football/Head Coach Chris Beech has made five changes to the side that prevailed over Nuneaton Borough on penalties last time out, with Theo Richardson, Sam Graham, Josh Kay, Jon Ustabasi and Luke Charman coming into the side. 

Emeka Obi, Danny Philliskirk and Danny Ormerod take places on the bench alongside new signing Dan Adshead. 

Danny Whitehead continues to train but serves the final game of his suspension. Kyron Gordon returned to full training this week, though today’s game has come a bit too soon for him, whilst Joe Rowley’s back spasms have settled, and he’s amongst the subs. Luke Conlan also continues to make good progress.  

Chris Beech confirmed in his pre-match press conference that Nelson Khumbeni has returned to Bolton after sustaining an ankle injury that will put him out of action for several months, whilst Owen Evans, who, after undergoing a scan, will spend a prolonged period away from the pitch with a ruptured ATFL.
