Barwell are in sixteenth place, eight points off the play-offs and five off the relegation zone. In the last month Barwell have only played one league game, a 1-1 draw with Halesowen Town two weeks ago.

Portas is now back to full fitness and will be part of the squad, as well as Terry Galbraith and Kevin Burgess who were both rested for the game on Sutton Coldfield's artificial surface.

The only players out are striker Amar Purewal, who is steadily recovering from a cruciate injury, and midfielder Phil Turnbull, who might be back before Christmas.

Kick-off on Saturday at Barwell is 3pm.

Updates on the game will be made on the club’s official Facebook and Twitter feeds.
