THE CONTEXT

Grimsby Town have found life back in the National League light work as the Mariners sit at the top of the table following their relegation from EFL League Two last season as the two sides meet for the first time ever at Grosvenor Vale on Tuesday evening. The visitors have lost just once this season and come to The Vale in rich form, off of the back of five straight wins. Both sides avoided defeat on the weekend, with the Stones picking up a 1-1 draw away at Weymouth, whilst Grimsby beat Yeovil Town 2-0 at home.


TEAM NEWS

Connor Stevens and Rhys Browne both remain a week or two away from a return to action and the unavailable list could multiply with midfield duo Alex Dyer and Charlie Cooper both coming off injured on the weekend. Fulham loanee Connor McAvoy made his debut on the weekend, scoring in the 1-1 draw at Weymouth and he looks to keep his place in the side. Medy Elito also missed the weekend's draw with injury.


WHAT WAS SAID?

Stuart Maynard: "Tuesday nights are always good under the lights at The Vale. You get a bit of dew on the surface and it means you can move the ball quicker and slicker. We are going to need our fans. They were excellent at Weymouth and really got behind the team. We want that again on Tuesday and if we can create a hostile atmosphere, it will give us a real chance."

FORM GUIDE


Stones:

Weymouth (A) 1-1 D (McAvoy)

Dagenham & Redbridge (H) 1-2 L (Bird)

Eastleigh (H) 1-2 L (Umerah) Solihull Moors (H) 0-0 D Torquay United (A) 5-0 L

WHO TO WATCH FOR?

John McAtee: McAtee joined the Mariners in the summer from their rivals Scunthorpe United and has taken to the National League like a duck to water, with six goals in twelve games. The young striker has formed a good partnership with the experienced Ryan Taylor and has been the standout so far in what is an in-form squad with an abundance of quality throughout.

Wealdstone and Grimsby Town have yet to meet.
