– Great three points on Tuesday. Changes worked well, played everything right for first 43 minutes. Learned a lot second half, nice to learn when you are in the lead.
– Local derby is for the supporters, overwhelmed by support on Tuesday and need to pay them back with a good result at Grimsby.
– Players have to “problem solve it within the scaffolding of our game plan.” Eek. Players need to think clearly in the moment and make the required decisions.
– Looking forward to going back to Blundell Park and hope to exploit their perceived weaknesses.
– Recognises that our support will be noticed by the team even though they will be outnumbered. Won twice in a few weeks 1-0 at BP with Braintree so have fond memories of the place.
– Has great respect for Grimsby and their manager, who has huge experience and seems very open and honest.
– Only preparation differences reflect the early 1.00 pm kick off.
–Nathan Arnold now fit and desperately wants to play. Very professional about things and he obviously knows Blundell Park backwards.
– Danny looks forward to the occasion and atmosphere. Loved the West Ham v Tottenham derby as a kid. Concorde v Canvey Island was the local derby as a young manager, they won on 9 out of ten occasions.
