Ok, our record against spa towns isn't great - think the debacle against Bath Town and countless defeats to Cheltenham ever since they beat us in the Play Off final. Thankfully we've never drawn Leamington in the cup.

But...I think our players will have a different mindset as well as a new found freedom and confidence after Tuesday night's win.

I know past glories count for nowt but how the mighty have fallen. Having seen us beat Liverpool and Spurs, knock Leicester (the then current holders)  out of the league cup, reach the summit of the 2nd tier, the last 16 of the FA Cup and win twice at Wembley in '98, we undoubtedly have one of the most impressive footballing back stories in this division. That all said, Harrogate are currently above us in the league, which doesn't lie, but I'm confident we can get the better of the tea baggers today. UTM.

Is there still a spar at 5ways?

In a neat little town they all call Grimsby
Apprentice to a tradeI was bound
And many's an hour's sweet happiness
Have I spent in this neat little town.

A sad misfortune came over me
Which caused me to stray from the land
Far away from my friends and relations
Never Betrayed by the black and white band.

Her eyes they shone like diamonds
I thought her the queen of the land
And her hair hung over her shoulders
Tied up with a black and white band.

I see the sun has gone to somebody’s head!

In all seriousness, I’m looking forward to today’s game more than I’ve looked forward to a Grimsby game in several months.

Get a result, preferably a win but a draw wouldn’t be a disaster and hope that ‘the others’ don’t get results like midweek.

Its the hope that kills you!

I agree though - as much as we all slag off our beloved Town, it only takes a small glimmer of hope to raise the spirits.  Plus the sun is out!

I was pretty much resigned to a season in the conference - now I am not so sure

Think we might beat Woodhall.

Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

Boston Spa is a small town close to Harrogate.  We could beat them.

Harrogate, although having a reasonable first season in the league, have only won 4 at home. Therefore I’m not saying we’ll win (bloody hell I’m a town fan so I’m hardly going to say that!!) but we do have a good chance of getting something out of the game. #UTM

Very winnable game. Let's hope we get the rub of the green and take our chances.

Definitely have the players to do it now.

Just hope we play a bit more fluently,  we look half decent when we do


When I was a little boy
I asked my daddy what would i be
would I be United, would i be Leeds
Here's what he said to me

Oh Grimsby Grimsby
Whatever will be will be
You'll follow then faithfully
Oh Grimsby Grimsby

Tell me Mam me Mam
I dont want no tea no tea
I'm watching the Grimsby
Tell me Mam me mam
