Marshall wants a winning start
MARCUS Marshall completed his one-month loan switch to Grimsby Town and insisted: I'll be ready to terrorise Tamworth.
The Bury winger yesterday became the Mariners' fourth loan signing of the campaign – joining Nathan Pond, Ross Hannah and Scott Neilson at the club.
And, with Neilson suspended for tomorrow's clash against the Lambs – and the following two games – the 23-year-old has set his sights on the Crawley man's left-wing berth.
"Hopefully I can impress in training and if selected I'll be ready to go against Tamworth," he told the Telegraph.

"I can play on either wing. I'm quick, direct, pacy, tricky and hopefully exciting to watch.
"If I can get one on one with the full-back as quickly as possible then that's my strength.
"Grimsby play football, they look to get it wide and that's exactly what I need – the ball!
"I've heard a lot about the lads here and I'm looking forward to getting straight into the action."
Following his summer move to join the Shakers, Marshall has found first-team opportunities limited.
The former Blackburn Rovers and Rotherham United man has appeared in 11 matches in all, with more than half coming off the bench.
"It's been frustrating for me but that's football," he said.
"If a new gaffer comes in and you're not really in favour, you just keep working hard and hope the opportunities will come.
"Chances at Bury have been quite minimal over the last few weeks. I've been coming off the bench a few times, but I need football."
Marshall added: "I didn't have to think about it too much when I heard Grimsby were interested in me.
"I was already thinking 'I need to be playing' and then the gaffer rang me up and said that Grimsby had come in.
"I knew the gaffers here were interested for a while and we've spoken now and again. I've finally got the chance to come here and it's the right time for me.
"It's ideal – I can come here, get some games, build up my confidence and do what I do best.
"Grimsby are a league club really – just temporarily in the Conference – and hopefully they will go up this season."
