Tuesday Night Under The Lights For The Gingerbreads

4 months ago By Callum Boyle

The play-off race for Grantham is still on as they face a Tuesday night trip to Leicestershire to play Barwell.

With Saturday's fixture against Stalybridge Celtic being postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, Grantham managed to remain 2nd in the table after teams around failed to capitalise.

The Gingerbreads could also close the gap to just 7 points at the top should top of the table Altrincham lose. Currently, Town boast just one defeat in their past five games, with the most recent result being a 2-2 draw at home to Farsley Celtic.

Leicestershire outfit Barwell are also enjoying a similar run of form, registering just one defeat in their past five games. Furthermore, Barwell were able to secure an impressive 2-0 away win at Workington, leaving them in 12th place and ten points off Grantham.

Grantham boss Adam Stevens has been preparing his team well for Tuesday night's game and believes his side are good enough to get the three points: "The lads have been preparing for this game well and are ready for the challenge ahead. With our excellent support behind us, we will give it our all so that we come away with the three points."

Tom Batchelor (suspension) and Luke Shaw (long term injury) are the only confirmed absences for Tuesday night. Zayn Hakeem could make his first start for the club since signing on loan from Mansfield Town. The rest of the squad is available to play.
