GRESLEY boss Martin Rowe has warned his side there will be changes ahead of Saturday's FA Cup tie at home to Cleethorpes Town.

The Moatmen lost 2-1 at Mickleover Sports on Monday and Rowe questioned the commitment of his players following the defeat.

"Mickleover dominated us and we weren't at the races at all," he said. "I don't why.

"We prepared the team in the same way as Saturday but some players go out there and don't give commitment to this club, which isn't good enough.

"We warned the players before they went out for the second half that we need to have tempo in the game, we needed a bit more aggression in the game and we wanted a bit more commitment.

"We didn't quite start well enough and when we conceded the second goal we made the three substitutions and all three played well.

"We didn't have enough players committed for a full 90 minutes and there were too many players left wanting.

"I thought we'd turned the corner but we need that bit more commitment and desire from the players which I felt we didn't get.

"There will be changes for Saturday. No-one is safe at this club with me."
