Crewe Alexandra manager Steve Davis has been said that he is impressed with how the Mariners have adapted to life back in the English Football League.
He told crewealex.net: “Grimsby are back in the League and I’ve been impressed with the way they have adapted. They have had a solid start to the season and had a great win at Luton at the weekend.
“Paul has them organised and solid and I know it will be a tough game. It always is over there. I remember playing there in the Championship for Barnsley in front of six or seven thousand supporters, so there is great potential.
“They will be pleased with the start they have made after coming up and they are a hard working team with a forward who is in form.
He added: “We are going there in good form as well, so it should be a good test for us. We know that if we play to our potential then we can be a match for any team at this level. That is how the players feel and we will be going there looking to add to our positive results.”
The Crewe boss also confirmed that Omar Bogle was someone who previously interested Crewe when he was catching the eye with Solihull Moors.
Steve also explained to the club’s official website: “Omar has done very well and he is a player we have kept an eye on because he came in for a few days with us about three years ago. He was at Solihull then and he did okay when he was here on trial.
“You could see he had some ability. He was a good size and a good target man and had a good left-foot. We liked him but just felt that the ones we had here at the time we ahead of him. We felt that he wouldn’t go into the team at that stage of his career.
“Grimsby paid some money for him and he has come through for them and done very well. He is a very good player and we know he will pose their main threat. “
