Grimsby Town hopeful over Craig Disley's hamstring injury
GRIMSBY Town's bosses are hopeful that Craig Disley's hamstring injury won't keep him out of action for long.
The skipper sustained the injury before half-time in Tuesday night's 2-0 defeat at Mansfield Town.
And, although the midfielder soldiered on until the break, he was unable to reappear for the second half.
Co-manager Paul Hurst admits that the 31-year-old would be a big miss for Town as they continue their promotion push, but is remaining optimistic.

"It was a disappointing night what with losing Craig Disley to injury at half-time," he said. "That didn't help us, although Andi (Thanoj) came on and did all right.
"Hopefully, he has just tweaked his hamstring. It's a bit early to diagnose it 100 per cent, but he certainly hasn't ruptured it or anything.
"He ran back, blocked a cross and felt it, but carried on until the break.
"At half-time he wasn't able to continue, so we are hoping that he has not caused too much damage because he is our captain and he has been playing particularly well.
"On Tuesday, he moved the ball and kept play ticking over for us nicely in the first half."
Hurst added: "We have to deal with these things.
"It wasn't the luckiest night for us, but we're not going to feel sorry for ourselves.
"The players' heads were down but they need to pick themselves up."
