"Forward Finnigan aggravated a groin strain at Princes Park, and was withdrawn at half-time.

Meanwhile, defender Allan – who struck the Heed’s equalising goal against the relegation-threatened Darts – picked up a hip injury late on.

Their absence compounds to the Tynesiders’ injury crisis – with seven players already ruled out of tomorrow’s clash at Blundell Park, and the involvement of another in doubt.

JJ O’Donnell, Phil Turnbull (both foot), Andrai Jones, John Oster (both knee), Adam Bartlett (stomach), Ben Clark (groin) and Matty Robson (hip) will all be missing again.

Jamie Chandler missed out on Tuesday’s game with a dead leg, with boss Gary Mills declaring that the midfielder’s chances of playing tomorrow are ’50-50’.

Josh Gillies, meanwhile, will serve the last of a three-game suspension at Blundell Park.

Following Tuesday’s draw in Kent, Mills hinted that Kevin Sainte-Luce may start his first game for the Tynesiders in over two months tomorrow, while 19-year-old midfielder Dean Briggs is likely to figure on the bench.

It all adds up to a mammoth task for the Heed, with Paul Hurst’s Grimsby just one point off the pace in the divison, having won eight of their last nine games.

Gateshead’s failure to see off second-bottom Dartford in midweek all but ended their quest for a top-five place, but Mills is desperate for his side to show what they’re made of on Humberside.

The Tynesiders dumped the Mariners out of the FA Trophy two months ago, going some way to avenging the 6-1 drubbing they suffered at the International Stadium back in August.

That result is now firmly consigned to the past for Mills, although the boss made no bones about the scale of the task tomorrow."

Oh, how things could have been different if we had beaten them that night. Oh well we need to move on and get revenge tomorrow

The bloke serving the last game of a 3 game ban, may or may not be the same bloke who they very recently only brought in on loan to help their severe injury crisis.

The loanee immediately got himself send off with a 3 match ban in his first game.  Thus messing them up but helping us.   They are supposed to be down to a few 17 year olds on the bench.  

(I posted news of most of these setbacks for them a while ago after speaking to a keen Gateshead fan.  I did not know about even more recent injuries this week because they had not happened yet).

Plus 11 games in 33 games wouldn't have helped them along with the long trip to Dartford on Tuesday night. The longer the game goes on the more their tiredness will show however I hope the frustration of our fans doesn't grown with it and we all remain patient.

So we have no excuses for not getting 3 points tomorrow.

Hopefully Simon Cowell-alike Chanler's on the wrong side of his 50-50 tomorrow. Decent player.

As said above though, we have no excuses.

I remember the build up to the Kidderminster game here earlier in the season. They were down to the bare bones and came here and beat us 2-0.

We need to make sure that there's no complacency tomorrow.

Think they will risk him to be honest. They don't really have a choice and have to go for it tomorrow. They could be 8 points off a play off spot with Eastleigh having a game in hand so potentially making it 11 points with 4 games left...
