HEYWOOD continue their battle to stay in the Greater Manchester Premier League at home to title-chasing Prestwich on Saturday.
Seven players who have featured in the first team this season are unavailable, meaning that the side certainly has an unfamiliar look and that the task will be even more difficult.
That has also had an effect on the second team bidding to get their Division 4 East title challenge back on track, with the side going to Newton Heath being skippered by veteran David Fare.
Heywood’s third team face a Sunday Division 2A game at Brooksbottom but the side has yet to be confirmed.
HEYWOOD 1st X1 (v Prestwich, home, Saturday, 1pm): T Townsend (capt), R Paterson, T McQuinn, J Morley, M Witts, R Bennett, D Fawcett, M Hood, A Khanna, R Morley, C Hilton.
HEYWOOD 2nd X1 (v Newton Heath, away, Saturday, 1.30pm): D Fare (capt), R Purser, C Kaye, C Booth, T Pagett, W Taylor, L Clarkson, J Keyworth, J Mills, T Sullivan, O Thomas.
HEYWOOD 3rd X1 (v Brooksbottom, away, Sunday, 2pm): To be confirmed.
