Grimsby Borough moved six points clear of their nearest rivals at the top end of Division One after Wednesday night’s narrow victory over Dronfield Town, and with their four nearest rivals playing each other on Saturday, Daniel Barrett’s men could have a very productive afternoon as they travel to mid table Shirebrook Town, writes Ian Robinson.
“We have to kick on again on Saturday,” said Daniel. “There will definitely be points dropped elsewhere with 2nd to 5th playing each other so we have to take full advantage of that situation and it really can open up. I won’t be holding my breath for one of the fixtures to be on though.”
“We are visiting a very difficult ground and having been there only a few weeks ago, we know the pitch will play a huge factor. We have four lads returning to the squad that we had missing on Wednesday so hopefully we will be flush with numbers heading into the fixture. There is competition for places as I don’t quite think we performed to our potential against Dronfield.”
