Paul Hurst: Grimsby Town must be tough at Dartford
GRIMSBY Town need to toughen-up for this afternoon’s FA Trophy showdown at Dartford.
That’s the view of joint boss Paul Hurst, with the Mariners just 90 minutes away from Wembley.
Hurst’s men go into the semi-final second leg with a 3-0 lead, but the co-manager is demanding a stronger, more physical display from Tuesday’s league defeat at Braintree.
“We were particularly disappointed with the way we lost (on Tuesday) because we felt for once we were out-muscled,” he said.

“We struggled defensively from set-plays, which is something that hasn’t happened in a long time.
“That’s what we’ve got to improve on and get back to being our best – organising, being on the front foot and working that bit harder.
“When we first came, that was certainly an issue for us – every time the opposition got a free-kick or a corner we were panicking.
“Teams are going to score from set-plays, of course they are, but the other night there were too many times when they got the first header and were first to things in general play as well."
