Question of the Week

Will Grimsby be relegated?



Barnet v Grimsby Team News

GRIMSBY head to Barnet for an FA Trophy game which neither side want to draw. Grimsby have to play on Thursday so are desperate to avoid a replay on Tuesday night and Barnet don't want to make the long trip north to Blundell Park.

The clubs have agreed that the match can go to extra time after 90 minutes, but they are unable to settle it by penalties so if the scores are still level after 120 minutes a replay will be necessary.

Both sides have indicated that they will take the competition seriously though, and they have indicated they will play full or near full strength sides.

Expect one or two changes from the Town first team, but otherwise a similar line-up to that which rescued a point at Welling is expected to take the pitch at what will proved to be Grimsby's first ever visit to the Hive, Barnet's new ground.

The Mariners reached the final of the FA Trophy at Wembley last year, but took two attempts to get past Coalville in Round 1 this season.

  • Town's league game at Southport has now been rearranged for Tuesday, February 25 (19.45)
