Grimsby Have Adapted Well To The EFL

15 September 2016

Mariners back on the up after return to the EFL through the play-offs.

Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis has been impressed with how Saturday’s opponents Grimsby Town have adapted to life back in the English Football League.

The Mariners have collated 10 points already following their promotion from the National League and Davis has been impressed with how Paul Hurst’s side have approached the season.

They will be looking to build on a fantastic 2-1 win at high-flying Luton Town last weekend with their in-form forward Omar Bogle scoring both goals.

Ahead of our trip to Blundell Park, Steve told us: “Grimsby are back in the League and I’ve been impressed with the way they have adapted. They have had a solid start to the season and had a great win at Luton at the weekend.

“Paul has them organised and solid and I know it will be a tough game. It always is over there. I remember playing there in the Championship for Barnsley in front of six or seven thousand supporters, so there is great potential.

“They will be pleased with the start they have made after coming up and they are a hard working team with a forward who is in form.

He added: “We are going there in good form as well, so it should be a good test for us. We know that if we play to our potential then we can be a match for any team at this level. That is how the players feel and we will be going there looking to add to our positive results.”
