League Two Form Guide
Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
By: Richard Hubbert
AFTER yet another lacklustre performance last weekend at home to Hartlepool, Town now go head to head with one of their relegation rivals in the shape of Chesterfield, one of manager Nicky Lawâ€™s former clubs.
New manager Nicky Law last week said that Town didnâ€™t have "the bottle" at home to Hartlepool, and it is clear that Town need to find some "bottle" if they are to have any chance of avoiding a second successive relegation. Chesterfield, like Town, are fighting for their lives and after a terrible start to their season, have been in good form over the past few months and lie a point ahead of the Mariners. For Town though, this test will surely show whether the current Mariners players are up for the fight.
Last Time Out
Town met Chesterfield at Blundell Park back in August, with the Mariners fielding two new signings that day: Nicky Daws and Iffy Onoura. Town ran out 4-0 winners with Mike Edwards, Graham Hockless, Marcel Cas and Stuart Campbell grabbing the Grimsby goals. Chesterfield had defender Gus Uhlenbeek sent off in a day to forget for the Spireites.
