Barrow v Grimsby Team News

By: Rob Sedgwick
Date: 24/01/2012

FOLLOWING their emphatic 6-0 victory over Bath at the weekend it's unlikely that the managers are to change the starting line-up for tonight's game at Barrow, given that there are no injuries. Confidence could not be higher amongst the squad and supporters following sixth consecutive league wins.

With a full squad to pick from Grimsby have the sort of strength in depth of in-form players not seen at Blundell Park for years. Bradley Wood, Rob Duffy, Anthony Church and Kiernan Hughes-Mason amongst others have all featured in the side in recent games, and none of them have been found wanting. But the best most of them can hope for is a seat on the bench due to the form of those currently in favour.

With relegation a distant prospect the Mariners now need to beat most of the teams they are left to face this season if they are to climb into the top 5, which has to be the aim for the campaign now.

Barrow will be a tougher nut to crack than Bath were on Saturday, especially on their own ground where they have lost twice this season. They sit just below Grimsby in the league but have been above Town nearly all season until the recent run on which Town embarked. Town beat Barrow 5-2 at Blundell Park earlier this season, but they have picked up 30 out of 46 points at home, so the Blundell Park scoreline cannot be regarded as an indicator of how the reverse fixture will go.

Barrow have a few injuries to contend with including Goalkeeper Danny Hurst (concussion) and Jack Mackreth (foot). Ex-Carlisle Striker Andy Cook looks like starting the game after a coming off the bench against Tamworth with the score 2-1 and scoring two goals to win the match for the Cumbrians.

Town (probable): McKeown, Silk, Garner, Miller, Townsend, Coulson, Disley, Thanoj, Artus, Hearn, Elding.
Subs: Hughes-Mason, Church, Duffy, Pearson, Wood.
