Grimsby Town v Buxton: Bucks not an unknown quantity for Mariners
GRIMSBY Town's bosses have been doing their homework ahead of tomorrow's FA Trophy encounter with Buxton (3pm).
Paul Hurst and Rob Scott know the Northern Premier League side well from their days managing Ilkeston Town and Boston United at that level.
However, the pair took the opportunity to do a little more research on their opponents ahead of the First Round tie at Blundell Park, as Hurst explained.

"And we watched them play on Tuesday night at Nantwich where we saw some strengths from them in terms of how they press and hard they worked.
"And we saw what we believe are a couple of weakness that we might be able to exploit.
"They did change the team around a bit with tomorrow's game in mind.
"But in general we know the players well from being in that league."
"We're well versed on them and ultimately it's about our mental approach and giving them the respect they deserve."
