Charles Vernam hopes Grimsby Town can make it seven home Sky Bet League Two games unbeaten when they face Notts County

21 December 2018

Grimsby Town striker Charles Vernam hopes the Mariners can make it seven home Sky Bet League Two games unbeaten when they welcome Notts County to Blundell Park on Saturday (3pm).

Michael Jolley’s side host Neal Ardley’s men this weekend, with the aim of making it five straight home wins in the league.

And Vernam hopes the Mariners can continue in the right direction towards making Blundell Park a “fortress.”

Speaking exclusively on iFollow Mariners, he said: “It is important to keep the home run going.

“We’ve almost made Blundell Park a bit of a fortress recently, which we wanted to do at the start of the season, but for some reason we couldn’t find a way to do that.

“It’s really important to have good home form in this league, and hopefully we can carry it on on Saturday, and keep the run going.

“We take each game as it comes but with the support there, everyone gets behind us.

“And as long as we can excite the fans with good, attacking football then I think it will be a really tough place for teams to come.”

The 22-year-old has scored four goals in 25 appearances in all competitions for the Mariners so far this season.

And he wants to continue being involved in goals and assists as Town enter the second half of the season.

He said: “It was a slow start for me personally, I struggled to get into the team at times, which is understandable – I’d just come into the side and into the building.

“But I think recently I’ve been happy with how I’ve been performing – it’s nice to contribute with goals and assists, which is what I want to do as an attacking player.

“And if they can keep flowing then that will be good for me personally, and good for the club as well.”

Tickets are still available for Saturday’s Sky Bet League Two clash with Notts County.
