'Victory at Edgar Street kick-started our season'
GRIMSBY Town's bosses have fond memories of their last meeting with Hereford United – Rob Scott hopes that's still the case at 5pm today.
The Mariners welcome the Bulls to Blundell Park this afternoon aiming to make it a double over their west country visitors.
After a scratchy start to the season, Town's 2-0 success at Edgar Street, pictured above, represented their first away triumph of the campaign.
And co-manager Scott believes that encounter kick-started his side's Conference title charge.

"It was a good result down there because we'd had a couple of shaky results and everyone was starting to panic after three or four games," he told the Telegraph.
"But we knew what we had and it was just a case of building our confidence levels.
"I really do think that result did instil a fair bit of confidence in the side. To go there and get the result that we did was a big thing for us at that time and we really kicked on from that point.
"It's definitely a result that we want to repeat this afternoon.
"Hereford were well organised and it took us a while to break them down in the first game, but we're a different animal this time around.
"Maybe they've moved on a little bit as well, so it will be a tough game for us."
Martin Foyle's men currently sit 12th in the Blue Square Bet Premier table, but have been inconsistent of late.
Victories on the road at Barrow and Kidderminster have been interspersed by defeats to the Harriers on home turf and an FA Trophy exit to Conference South Chelmsford.
Scott added: "Hereford are a good side and were obviously in the Football League last year.
"They've had a bit of a tumultuous time financially but it seems as though they've turned a corner in that respect and are now trying to bolster their squad, so they've obviously overcome that.
"They are a good side, they're well organised and Martin (Foyle) has been there and done it before.
"He'll have them knowing exactly how he wants them to carry out their roles and they will be a difficult side to beat, but I'm sure they'll be looking at us and thinking the same thing.
"As long as we're back on our mettle, we'll give them a good game.
"We demand from our players all the time and, for them, it's a case of keep doing what they have been doing.
"What's got us to the point we're at is hard work, endeavour and good football – and we want all that to continue this afternoon."
