Rob Scott wants Grimsby Town fans to help title assault
"WHEN we win a game and it's that electric atmosphere that you get at Blundell Park, the players come off and are absolutely buzzing with the fact that the fans have got behind them."
That's the message from Grimsby Town joint boss Rob Scott as the Mariners' title push steps up a notch against Kidderminster Harriers this afternoon (3pm).
The co-manager appreciates the advantage a BP crowd can generate as the five-way battle for the sole automatic promotion spot hots up.
"We need as many fans to come to the games as possible," Scott told the Telegraph.

"And when they come to the game, we need them to get behind the team – which they do to a large degree – but we need as many as we can getting behind us with the run-in that we've got.
"We'll need it because, in respect of the amount of games that we've got coming up, it's a tough run-in.
"Every bit of encouragement that the players can get will certainly help.
"We'll need all the help we can get if we're going to achieve our aims this season."
Scott continued: "At the game against Ebbsfleet, there was a good turnout. But there's still that expectancy of us to beat the Ebbsfleets, Braintrees, Dartfords and Hydes. People walk away thinking 'ah well we would have won that anyway'.
"It's not as easy as that and this season has shown that with how tight it is at the top of the league.
"Yes, we're Grimsby Town and yes we're a big club.
"But although we're striving hard to change that, we're Conference managers, they are a Conference players, and Grimsby Town is a Conference club."
