Following Campion’s victory at Hallam on Tuesday, Grimsby Borough find themselves in 2nd place in Division One and in danger of missing out on promotion to the Premier Division, writes Ian Robinson.
Tomorrow sees them host Glasshoughton Welfare knowing that their fate is now out of their hands, sitting as they do, 3 points behind the new leaders with 3 games to play.
Manager Daniel Barrett isn’t paying too much attention to things that he has no control over and is just focusing on his own teams efforts. “I’m looking forward to the game, as I’ve been itching since not being there last week. We had a great training session last night and the lads had a really good laugh, as well as putting the work in.”
“It will be a difficult game at the weekend, Glassy are a hard working team and are always difficult to break down. Our lads know there’s a job in hand and we know what’s on the line.”
Meanwhile, opposing Joint Manager Darren Holmes insists that his team will be giving everything they’ve got in their last two games. “It’s going to be a very tough game for us on Saturday. Grimsby have the bit between their teeth and are pushing to win the league. The FA has ensured the season was over for most of us by November by removing the play offs and also making it difficult even if you finish second to go up, but we will, of course do our very best, as it’s only fair to the other chasing teams.”
“We always go out to get a result and Saturday will be no different. The lads who play will give 110% as usual. We’re all looking forward to a break but still have a job to do to finish the season. There should be a big crowd and as usual we’re really looking forward to the game.”
