Scott Garner is set get his first start for the mariners since his summer Transfer from Mansfield Town. The former England C international will replace Darran Kempson, who is banned following his red card against Tamworth last weekend.

Rob Atkinson also has an outside chance of playing following a return from injury. He is back in full training and showing just what a quality player he is, though you feel a lack of fitness will count against him.

September is a lucky month for Scott, this time last year he captained the England C team in the 1-1 draw against Hungary under-23’s on 15 September. He was also due to play against Poland under-23’s in the November until club commitments at the Stags intervened.

Good luck Scott, sounds like the clash of the Cod Army and the Mariners will be a lively one given their disciplinary record.
