Grimsby Town v Dartford: Don't rule either team out after 90 minutes, says Paul Hurst
NOTHING will be 100 per cent decided in tomorrow's FA Trophy semi-final between Grimsby Town and Dartford.
That's the prediction from Mariners joint boss Paul Hurst ahead of the first leg at Blundell Park.
Town may sit eight places above their visitors in the Blue Square Bet Premier table and have home advantage this week, but Hurst is expecting a tight encounter.
He said: "Whatever happens tomorrow, I don't envisage that the tie will be over. I think we will go into the following Saturday with all still to play for. If we can win tomorrow and take that to Dartford, it gives us a good chance. But if it didn't quite go our way I don't see a scoreline that will rule any team out.

"Our approach going into the game is to take an advantage into the second leg. The moment you start worrying about different scenarios, you can get lost and take the focus away from what you're trying to achieve.
He added: "They've shown that when they need to get up for games, they can be a real challenge for anyone in this league. They came to our place earlier in the season and deserved their victory."
"We won't be underestimating them and we don't feel it's a case of 'now we've avoided Wrexham in the draw we're going to Wembley.'
"We've got to earn that right and if we don't approach it in that manner we will come unstuck."
