Grantham Town joint manager Ian Robinson says the Gingerbreads have made “massive strides” from where they were last season but stressed that they needed to keep their feet on the ground.
He said: “We are punching above our weight in terms of the resources the club has available to it. We are doing that comfortably at the moment, but we are certainly over achieving what we expected to do.”
Robinson said he was frustrated with a draw at Whitby Town last Saturday but maintained it was still a good result: “The frustration came from the manner in which we got the result. One thing we need to do is to keep the ball better.”
Robinson added that Grantham released striker Massiah McDonald from his contract last week: “He missed such a lot of football that it was hard for him to get going for us.”
Robinson said that defender Sam Purcicoe has gone out on loan to Belper Town for a month to get some game time and “get his confidence back”.
The Gingerbreads will also be without striker Greg Smith for tomorrow’s game at home to Witton Albion, while Kern Miller and Michael Towey are possibilities.
Kick-off at The Meres is 3pm.
