So with Grimsby have a torrid time in the league and still without a win in the league for 20 games, they can at least claim victory in the cups this year.
Grimsby`s only victories coming against Tranmere in the league cup and chesterfield in the JPT, it really doesn`t boast well for the Mariners.
So with Grimsby being drawn against Morecambe away will a cup run help the club or again distract the mariners from the league has seen last year with our run in the JPT.
The Fa cup is a hit and miss with Grimsby has last year we drew Carlisle in the first round which we drew at Carlisle and then brought them back to the park where we beat them 1-0 thanks to Gary Jones stunning goal, we were then knocked out in the next round when we went down 3-0 to Huddersfield.

History in the Fa Cup:

07/08 Season:
1st Round Carlisle away 1-1
1st Round reply Carlisle at home 1-0
2nd Round Huddersfield away lost 3-0
06-07 Season:
1st Round Northampton away 0-0
1st Round reply Northampton at home lost 2-0
05-06 Season:
1st Round Bristol Rovers at home lost 2-1
04-05 Season:
1st Round Exeter away lost 1-0
03-04 Season:
1st Round QPR at home Won 1-0
2nd Round Peterborough away lost 3-2

With the history of the last 5 seasons not getting the mariners past round 2 will this year be different.
We know all about Morecambe in the cups last year many people will remember we played them 3 times in a week when we played them in the JPT North area final and in the league.
So how do you think we will do against Morecambe on the 8th November vote in our poll now, or register for an account and let us know your views by joining our forums.
