Michael Coulson is out of Boro's FA Cup clash

Skipper Michael Coulson has suffered an achilles injury and could be out for over a month, while on loan goalkeeper Ryan Whitley is cup tied.

Kieran Glynn and Lloyd Allinson come into the starting 11, with James Cadman also missing out due to work commitments.

"I'm gutted Michael is out injured," said Kelly.

"It looks like he will be out for three to four weeks at best but we need to wait and see on that one.

"Ryan Whitley is cup tied so Lloyd Allinson comes in, and James Cadman can't play because of work commitments, so we're a bit light on the bench."

Boro will pocket £2,250 if they can overcome United, with the losers taking away £750.

Kelly is confident his side can progress if they can replicate their performance from Saturday's 2-0 win at Atherton.

"We used the ball so well on Saturday and looked solid defensively too," he added.

"If we can perform to those levels again, I can't see many teams living with us at this level."
