League Two Table
Question of the Week
Will Paul Hurst stay at Grimsby?
Preview: Bury v Grimsby
By: Richard Hubbert
TOWN travel to Gigg Lane this Saturday to take on a Bury side who pulled off a fantastic win in the Carling Cup on Tuesday by beating Sunderland. But despite their cup heroics, the Shakers are still yet to record a point in League Two.
The Mariners fared less well in the cup on Tuesday evening, falling to a 3-0 defeat at Blundell Park to League One strugglers Crewe Alexandra. However, Graham Rodger has since been busy in the transfer market with one player leaving and two players signing for the Mariners. Ben Futcher joined League Two rivals Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee on Thursday, whilst defender Nick Fenton arrived on a three-year deal from Doncaster Rovers. Midfielder Danny Boshell also signed for Town on non-contract terms, and both will be included in the squad to face the Shakers. Rodger will still hope to further add to his squad in the next few days, with a midfielder still high on his wish list.
The last time the Mariners visited Gigg Lane was Boxing Day last year. An early goal from Danny Reet (now at Mansfield) for Bury was soon cancelled out by a Gary Jones strike after half an hour of play. Town claimed all three points with 15 minutes left when Gary Cohen netted, to keep Town in second place in the table.
