Key battle

Jordan Clark is back from injury and started in Saturday’s loss to Southend United. He was Stanley’s best player on the day and has been all season – he will be looking to cause Salford plenty of problems.

Last meeting

This match in the Trophy will be the first time the two sides have played against each other, Salford’s rapid recent rise through the leagues bringing them to this stage. The Ammies have won four promotions in five years.
