THE CONTEXT

Both sides have suffered a slump in form since they last met in late-October when then table-topping Grimsby suffered a 1-0 defeat at Grosvenor Vale, with Wealdstone winning three times and the Marines just clocking up two victories since then. Midweek results saw Grimsby lose 1-0 to Wrexham thanks to a goal from their new £300,000 signing Ollie Palmer, whilst the Stones fought for a well-earned point in a 0-0 draw with Notts County.


TEAM NEWS

Jack Cook came off injured midweek with a groin injury, he will be assessed this week to see if he will feature on Saturday or not. Stones were given an added boost when Douglas Taylor's red card appeal was successful, making him available for the trip to Grimsby. Another boost to Stuart Maynard's side was the inclusion of David Sesay in Tuesday night's squad, he made his debut after returning from AFCON duty with Sierra Leone. Aside from that the Stones have no fresh injury concerns with both Rhys Browne and Andrew Eleftheriou the only other injured players, although Browne is nearing a return.


WHAT WAS SAID?

Stuart Maynard: "They still play the same system in the games that we've watched from when we played them last, they played really well against Notts County the other day as well. They're not in the greatest of form but they are a top club who are striving to get promotion, but that's how hard this league is, they've only lost five or six out of their last ten games.


"Anyone can hit bad form in this league and we've just got to pick these points up wherever we can, like Tuesday night, we will respect that point even though I felt that we certainly edged it on the half chances, it wasn't a game of many chances but if we took one we would've probably taken all three points on Tuesday night."


FORM GUIDE

Stones:

Notts County (H) 0-0 D

Woking (A) 2-0 L

Dover Athletic (H) 2-1 W (Stevens, Charles)

Boreham Wood (A) 1-0 L

Needham Market (A) 2-1 L (Buse)


Grimsby Town:

Wrexham (A) 1-0 L Bromley (H) 1-2 L (Maguire-Drew) Altrincham (H) 2-0 W (McAtee, Maguire-Drew) FC Halifax Town (A) 1-0 L FC Halifax Town (H) 1-1 D (Maguire-Drew)


WHO TO WATCH FOR?

Jordan Maguire-Drew: Maguire-Drew raised a few eyebrows when he quit Woking just weeks into the season after joining the Cardinals in the summer, only to then join Grimsby a week later. However, the winger has kicked off life at Blundell Park in some positive form by scoring three times in his six appearances so far. Wealdstone fans will remember him well for scoring the goal that knocked the Stones out of the FA Cup in 2016/17 whilst playing for Dagenham & Redbridge.
