Recent results involving Grantham’s play-off rivals have slowly and steadily improved the Gingerbreads chances of a top five finish this season. Grantham joint boss Wayne Hallcro repeated his view of the reminder of the season.
“As a management team, we only look one game ahead with the players.” He said. “It has worked for us, so we will not change it.”
At the same time, Hallcro suggested that the next two weeks might go a long way to settling the destiny of the season. Although the Gingerbreads rivals have games in hand on Grantham, those are running out.
“While we play Rushall then Rainworth, there are a lot of the other teams playing each other on those Saturdays an in the middle of the week.” Hallcro pointed out. “I believe the picture will be a lot clearer after we have played Rainworth at home a week on Saturday.”
The two weeks and the intervening days see all of Grantham’s rivals involved in games against each other. Barwell, Kidsgrove, Newcastle, Brigg, Sutton Coldfield, Rushall, Carlton, Glapwell and Romulus all face games against each other. Of the 28 games played by April 2nd, 7 involve two of those sides with Brigg, Barwell and Romulus involved twice.
