Imps V Grimsby – The Form of The Fishy Foe

Grimsby come to the Bank on Boxing day in the first of two of the festive all Lincolnshire double headers. They will have to do it without 9 goals in 14 Ross Hannah, who got the winner on Friday against Wrexham.  With his try before you buy loan spell completed Bradford will seek hard cash on the table for him to return to Blundell Park in time for round two on January 1st. Exciting wideboy and fellow loanee Scott Neilson has also completed his loan spell and will return to Crawley evening things up a tad, as the table topping Mariners travel to the Mighty Imps, who fancy a play-off place after a fine run of form including a 10 match unbeaten run.

A big welcome to the Mariners, thank you for reading the form of the Foe courtesy of Bank exile Neil Gentleman-Hobbs.

   Grimb Badge.pngThe Mariners Form

The Mariners have cast off the long-term loss of hit-man Hearn and really got their act together over the last 3 months. The win over big rivals Wrexham on Friday shows a robust and resilient squad has what it takes to beat those around them as well as the BSP’s stubborn sides that have seen them enjoy a successful, albeit relatively clement, recent run.
