GRIMSBY entertain Darlington on Saturday at Blundell Park boosted by the midweek win over Cambridge. Town and Darlo were relegated together from League Two and neither side has really challenged for promotion since.

Kempson's suspension for the red card at Newport has been struck off following an appeal by the club when the red card was overturned.

Anthony Church (back) is now ready to be included in the side, if selected, but realistically is more likely to start from the bench.

Town have no new injuries although defenders Garner and Silk are still ruled out. Midfielder Craig Disley has a minor calf knock. but it should not prevent him from playing.

Grimsby lost the corresponding fixture to Darlington last year, going down 1-0 in the game at Blundell Park. However Town won the away match at the Darlington Arena last season.

Darlo, managed by Mark Cooper who turned down the Grimsby down in the summer, have picked up 5 points from their opening 4 games, but they have not won since the opening day's victory over Braintree. There have only been a total of 5 goals in their first four matches, unlike Town who have had 10 goals in the same number of games.

The Quakers have no new injuries since their midweek game with Alfreton. Striker Adam Rundle (ankle) is not expected to be fit in time for the match on Saturday, and left back Aaron Brown (thigh) is ruled out.
