OPINION: Let's not get carried away just yet
by Matt Dannatt, Football Writer
AFTER last night's showing, Grimsby Town fans could be forgiven for dreaming of Wembley already.
On what was a rousing evening at Blundell Park, the Mariners comprehensively brushed aside league rivals Luton Town to make it through to the semi-finals of the FA Trophy.
Rob Scott and Paul Hurst's men will now have to come through two legs against either FC Halifax or Dartford - who play tonight - in order to secure a return to the home of football.

But as Scott stressed in the aftermath of last night's clash, no-one should be getting carried away just yet.
Granted, on paper, the Mariners should have too much for either Halifax or Dartford, but as my predecessor said so often, football is not played on paper.
The Darts have already won at Blundell Park this season and they or the Shaymen will be tricky opponents in the last four.
The Mariners will have to be at their best once again for fans to start booking their tickets to London in March.
