Opinion: Grimsby Town must not lose focus
By Mariners fan and Grimsby Institute student Chris Stephenson
GRIMSBY Town are back in action again tomorrow night against Macclesfield Town – and the Mariners are looking to keep their promotion charge on track following their 3-1 win over Ebbsfleet United at Blundell Park.
This is the start of a huge run-in towards the end of the season for Town – probably the biggest they've had for a number of years – and there's even more riding on it with the impending trip to Wembley at the back end of March.
The key is to remain focused. The club has been on a fantastic run this campaign and it could potentially turn into one of the most successful seasons they've had for years.

Tomorrow night is just the start. Macclesfield are only in eighth place and chasing a play-off spot themselves, so nobody is expecting them to just roll over.
Added to that, we've two massive games coming up against Forest Green and Kidderminster which, whatever the result, could have a major impact on our season.In other words, Town can't afford to let complacency, or the thought of another '98, cloud their vision of the challenge ahead – however nice that thought might be.
They have to remain focused and pick up as many points as possible, then nothing anyone else does will matter.
They've done the 'bouncing back', now they need to keep it going, because it seems we're being geared up for an exciting finish to this season.
