Looking ahead to the Cyprus clash, Fairclough told the FA website:
“The squad for Cyprus is, in the main, made up of tried and tested players who have served us well with a sprinkling of new exciting additions.
“Paul Lewis of Macclesfield has become an instrumental player in their push for promotion to the Football League.
“Stefan Payne of Dover has proved to be the perfect foil for Chris Kinnear’s Dover side that have stormed up the table and performed well in all cup competitions.
“The continuity of a squad is always a problem for our exciting team.
“However, on this occasion most players will understand what we are all about and what is expected.
