A lively threat

2 September 2016

Notts County manager John Sheridan says Grimsby will pose a ‘lively’ attacking threat tomorrow.

The newly-promoted Mariners arrive at Meadow Lane as the division’s top scorers and Sheridan knows his team have to be wary of their latest opponents.

He said: “Grimsby are a good team who’ve got goals in them – they’re lively up front.

“They’ve been winning a lot of football matches in the last two-three years and they work very hard as a team, so we’ve got to deal with that.

“But, at the same time, they’ve conceded goals. I think it’ll be an entertaining game.

“We’ve got one or two players who are doing alright so hopefully we’ll get the three points, which is the main thing.”

Sheridan confirmed Curtis Thompson, who is ‘two or three weeks’ away, is his only absentee.

And, while a healthy squad is a nice problem to have, the manager admits it leaves him with a difficult decision to make tomorrow.

Sheridan said: “Naming my subs is probably harder than naming my team because I’m going to have to leave four people out.

“At training this morning I had 20-odd players who are all fit and wanting to play. I just want to keep them all on their toes and competing for a place in the side.

“I want them all to know the manager will give them an opportunity if he feels their attitude’s good.”

Sheridan will be interviewed by Colin Slater in the Wheeler Suite ahead of tomorrow's match. Click here for more information.
