Grimsby Town manager Michael Jolley praises Tranmere Rovers' attacking threats ahead of Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash at Blundell Park

26 November 2018

Grimsby Town boss Michael Jolley has praised Tranmere Rovers' attacking options ahead of Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash at Blundell Park (7.45pm).

The Mariners play host to Micky Mellon's seventh-place side, who have the league's top goalscorer James Norwood (13) in their ranks.

And Jolley has highlighted Tranmere's attacking threats as the Mariners look to go three Sky Bet League Two games unbeaten.

Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: "They're only one point off the automatic places so they've had a really strong start to the season.

"They're a good team, but a good team is usually only as good as its strikers, and their strikers have done really well.

"James Norwood being the obvious one, but Paul Mullin has also done really well.

"But they're a robust team, they've got good experience at this level, and they're on a bit of a roll - they've got good momentum.

"It's another difficult game, but we're at home and when we're at home we think we can compete with all the teams that we play against at this level."

Danny Collins will serve a one-match suspension for the red card he received in the 2-2 draw with Northampton Town on Saturday.

Akin Famewo and Reece Hall-Johnson remain out, while Elliott Whitehouse continues his ACL injury rehabilitation.

Tickets are still available for Tuesday's Sky Bet League Two clash with Tranmere Rovers.
