Grimsby Borough hope to maintain momentum after good win
TWO wins in a week is the aim for Grimsby Borough as they prepare for a home match against Rossington Main tomorrow.
Borough will take to the field at the Bradley Community Stadium (3pm) in upbeat mood after a fine 2-0 victory over Dinnington Town in midweek.
That away win was their first three points of 2013.
Now bosses Nigel Fanthorpe and Steve Newby want to make it two on the bounce with a good result on home turf tomorrow.

Fanthorpe said: "It was a strange game on Tuesday night. It was not one of our best performances, but it turned out to be a great win.
"Our keeper James Swann came in and made some outstanding saves. He is an experienced lad and did well.
"John Waugh took his chances well and got both goals.
"It is always tricky to get a good result at Dinnington, but we played well going forward and it is a relief to finally get our first win of the year.
"Tomorrow's match against Rossington is another winnable match. They are another team who have been a bit up and down. We have got to be looking to get three points from these home games."
Tomorrow's clash is the first of three home games on the bounce for Borough.
They will have to make changes though, due some injuries picked up in midweek, and some players being unavailable
Goalscorer Waugh picked up an ankle knock and is a doubt, as is Jim Archer, who has a calf problem.
Josh Fuller – the former Grimsby Town youngster – is unavailable for tomorrow's game.
But the Borough management team have faith that the eleven they put out tomorrow will be capable of earning another win.
Against Dinnington, Waugh struck in the 11th and 70th minutes to seal the victory.
Although Borough were not at their best, lady luck, a welcome clean sheet and clinical finishing proved to be the difference.
Dinnington were lively from the off, constantly getting in behind a defence that were far too high up the pitch.
Borough took the lead when former Mariners frontman Andy Taylor got round Sykes to cross low into the box and Waugh, pictured, bundled the ball home from two yards.
Swann, in the Boro goal, was in constant action, and with the score at 1-0 he pulled off a fantastic reflex block from Liam Cartlege, who thought he had got the equaliser.
Waugh's second goal came when Fuller hit a cross-shot and the home keeper could only parry the ball into his path – with the striker making no mistake from close range. Fuller should have made it three when, with the goal at his mercy, he put his shot past the post.
