After back to back away games it’s back to the Wham Stadium tomorrow.

Grimsby Town are the visitors as Stanley look to continue their unbeaten run.

The relentless pace of March football continues as the Reds are back at home.

They’re hosting Grimsby, looking to avenge a defeat at Blundell Park on Boxing Day.

Form remains good and John Coleman will be keen for his team to put in another good showing at the Wham Stadium.

Stanley go into the game having extended their unbeaten run to nine matches.

They are yet to lose a game at the Wham Stadium in 2017.

John Coleman’s side sit 14th in the table ahead of kick off, 15 points clear of the bottom two and ten from the top seven.

Team News

Fulham loanee Marek Rodak misses the game due to being on international duty with Slovakia under 21s. Aaron Chapman or Elliot Parish could come in to replace him.

Midfielder Scott Brown serves the second of his five match suspension following his red card at Yeovil.

Captain Seamus Conneely limped out of the midweek win at Morecambe and is a doubt, as is fellow midfielder Arron Davies.

Sheffield Wednesday loanee Sean Clare is out for four to six weeks with a broken bone in his foot.


Play-off final victory over Forest Green in the summer brought Grimsby a return to the Football League and they’ve set about establishing themselves in League Two this season.

Though manager Paul Hurst moved on to Shrewsbury a couple of months into the campaign, replacement Marcus Bignot picked up the baton and they find themselves mid-table.

Like many in League Two their form has been up and down but they’ll be keen for a strong end to the campaign.

Marcus Bignot was appointed as the new Grimsby Town manager in November 2016.

He arrived at the club having spent five years at now National League side Solihull Moors, where he guided the West Midlands side to promotion last season.

The former defender was a youngster at Birmingham City before spells at Telford United and Kidderminster Harriers, moving to Crewe Alexandra in August 1997 for £100,000.

Spells with Bristol Rovers, Queens Park Rangers and Rushden and Diamonds followed before he ended his playing career back with Kidderminster and went into coaching and then management with Solihull.
