Paul Hurst draws confidence from Grimsby Town squad's ability
"WHEN we're on our game, I think we can beat anyone in this league."
That's the message from Grimsby Town joint-boss Paul Hurst ahead of his side's clash with Tamworth at Blundell Park tomorrow (3pm).
It will already be the second meeting between the two sides this season, after Town won 1-0 in a rearranged fixture at the start of last month.
Hurst believes tomorrow's game represents a 'good opportunity' to take the three points that would see them keep pace with their rivals at the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier table.

But he acknowledges that Marcus Law's side will be tricky opponents, and warned that Town will have to be at the top of their game to match them.
He said: "Tamworth have got good players with a bit of know-how about the league and they work extremely hard.
"They are a good, footballing side and the lads that they've got in midfield certainly aren't giants so they look to play.
"We know that they'll be tricky opposition and our fans will expect us to win – I expect us to win, provided we're anything like we should be, because we trust the players and appreciate the quality we have.
"If we're on our game, I think we can beat anyone in this league, but ultimately the opposition are there to make it difficult for you.
"If we're right at it it's a good opportunity to take three points but Tamworth will make it difficult for us.
He added: "In hindsight, it was a good point last weekend at Ebbsfleet and it keeps us ticking over and adds another to our impressive away record.
"If we can marry that up with our home form and pick up wins, then it's a recipe that's going to put us in contention.
"We've done very well so far"
