Town Draw Barnet

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 12/11/2006

GRIMSBY will play their second round FA Cup tie at Barnet provided they beat Northampton in the 1st Round replay at Blundell Park. Ironically the two clubs are set to meet just three days later at Underhill in a league match.

Barnet are placed just above the Mariners at the wrong end of League Two, and on Saturday beat Lincolnshire Conference North side Gainsborough

While the draw is not a particularly good one for the Mariners at least they are paired against a club in their own division, and a not particularly good one at that!

Should Grimsby overcome both Northampton and Barnet they will reach Round 3 of the FA Cup where the top sides enter, something they have not managed since they were relgated from the Championship in 2003 (when they entered the cup at that stage).

The full draw is as follows

Farsley/Milton Keynes v Blackpool
Cheltenham/Scunthorpe v Wrexham
Brighton v Stafford/Maidenhead
Bristol City v Gillingham
Shrewsbury/Hereford v Port Vale
Macclesfield/Walsall v Rochdale/Hartlepool
Stockport v Wycombe
Weymouth/Bury v Chester
Barnetv Northampton/Grimsby
Tranmerev Peterborough
King's Lynnv Oldham
Darlington v Swansea
Salisbury City v Nottingham Forest
Torquay v Leyton Orient
Bristol Roversv Bournemouth
Bradford v Havant & W/Millwall
Swindon v Morecambe
Mansfield v Doncaster
Chelmsford/Aldershot v Basingstoke Town
Rushden & Diamonds v Tamworth

Matchs to be played in the first weekend of December.
