Grimsby Town Preview

Steve Ball's side preparing for visit of Grimsby Town

4 December 2020

Grimsby Town are the visitors on Saturday evening as the U's look to extend their unbeaten home record in the league in front of almost 1,000 U's fans.

The U's would have been looking for a bit of stability after the defeat at Exeter City on the road ten days ago. 

And the visit of Crawley Town producing a 1-1 draw would have given Steve Ball's side just that. It was a fairly even contest that could have gone either way in the second half with the two 'keepers putting in good performances to keep the scores low. 

This weekend Ball will want his team to do one better than Tuesday night and put on a winnng performance in front of the U's fans who are attending their first game back at the JCS. 

"We have spoken to the lads about the games that have already had fans back. Seeing players scoring goals celebrating with fans in the week was brilliant, and our boys really can't wait for it." - Steve Ball

"I've actually been talking to a few fans that I've stayed in touch with over the years and they just can't wait. The excitement is building.

"It's quite lucky that our first game back is at home, and kicking off at 5:30 as well gives it a bit of a night feel, so that's all geared up and hopefully we can perform for them on Saturday.

"The home form has been really up there this year. It's really important that we move on from Tuesday, turn that draw into a win on Saturday if we can, we know it will be a tough challenge. 

"Grimsby are a really hard-working side, they have had a couple of sore losses over the last couple of weeks, but they're a team that will be organised and have real offensive threats, so it will be a challenge."

A win could put the U's back in the play-off places, which would be a real treat for the U's fans that are making their way to the JobServe Community Stadium this weekend.
