Rob Scott wants to see back of 'lackadaisical' Grimsby Town
JOINT boss Rob Scott wants a return to the sort of Grimsby Town performance fans have come to expect of late.
After a humbling FA Cup defeat to Kidderminster last time out, Scott is keen to see a response from his side when they take on Macclesfield Town at Blundell Park tomorrow.
He admits his side were "lackadaisical" against the Harriers and has called for a more typical Town showing against Steve King's men.
Scott, pictured, said: "Everybody knows what we expect from our team. We always want to earn the right to play our football and we simply didn't do that last time.

"We can't afford to start half-paced like that again tomorrow – it was a big mistake and it cost us.
"Now the real art is bouncing back from that; good players and good teams don't make those mistakes repeatedly.
"It's about learning from those mistakes and ensuring that they don't happen again, starting against Macclesfield."
The Moss Rose outfit sit ninth in the Blue Square Bet Premier, after making a flying start to the season following their relegation from the Football League.
But the Cheshire side have slipped down the table, winning one of their last seven games.
Nevertheless, Scott says that the Silkmen will provide a tough test for his side tomorrow.
He said: "They've got a big squad and have had a turnaround of players since they were relegated last season.
"But they've got some good players in there and we are well aware of the strengths they have.
"It will be a tough game for us – there's no doubt about that.
"They started the season very well and showed people that they could compete at this level but then they've had not such a great run.
"But they got the win against Marine in the FA Cup and that will obviously lift confidence in their camp.
"But for us, despite our defeat in the cup, nothing changes. We know that if we're at the races then we're a match for anyone at this level.
"Now its about getting back to what we do well, starting against Macclesfield tomorrow."
