Saturday Team News
By: Rob Sedgwick
MIKE Newell looks almost certain to name an unchanged line up as Grimsby look to make it four consecutive home wins against Accrington.
The Mariners have a poor record against Accrington since their return to the football league, but Stanley have lost their best player Paul Mullin to Bradford so may not be as big a threat as in recent fixtures against the Lancashire outfit.
Newell is unlikely to change a side which did well to pick up a point at Shrewsbury, a game which they could even have won at a place where more teams have lost than any other ground in League Two. Town may be forced to make changes 48 hours later against Notts County, but events on Saturday will largely dictate that.
On loan striker Barry Conlon has scored in all three games since joining Town and must be close to some sort of record if he nets against Stanley.
Entrance to Blundell Park is just ten pounds on Saturday when accompanied by the necessary voucher from the Grimsby Telegraph.
Town's relegation rivals all meet up on Saturday so we look at the news from their games.
Fishy Prediction: Grimsby 1 Accrington 0
Chester v Macclesfield.
Chester goalkeeper John Danby will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. City have been allowed to take on a loan player to replace him - James Spencer, Rochdale's third choice 'keeper.
Chester players Jay Harris and David Mannix had both been implicated in a betting scam when they played for Accrington Stanley last season.
Macclesfield have a number of players coming back from injury who will be pushing for a first team start Francis Green (knee), Emile Sinclair and Jordan Hadfield are all coming back into the reckoning.
Fishy Prediction: Chester 1 Macclesfield 1
Barnet v Bournemouth.
Barnet leading goalscorer John O'Flynn has a hamstring injury and is expected to miss both of Barnet's games over the Easter period.
However Mark Hughes (ankle) and Michael Leary (thigh) are available after injuries.
Bournemouth striker Steve Fletcher is a doubt for the Easter fixtures because of an on-going knee problem.
Midfielder Marvin Bartley (groin) will miss the trip to Underhill, as will defender Joel Ward, but Sammy Igoe is nearing full fitness and may return.
Fishy Prediction: Barnet 0 Bournemouth 2
