Grantham Town only have one thing on their minds

Grantham Town go into tomorrow’s penultimate home league game of the season with one thing on their minds – victory.

Having drawn their recent home games, manager Adam Stevens believes that only a return to winning ways will be good enough to keep them in the play-off mix.

He said: “The only thing missing in recent games has been the chance conversion; we created enough to have given Ilkeston a roasting but, having totally dominated the match, we did not finish them off and got suckered by their one strike at goal in the half.”

Stevens hopes that Brazilian striker Felipe Barcelos can end his goal drought: “He has been a great signing for us and links up play so well, but the goals have dried up in recent matches. This happens to strikers and he was unfortunate not to score against Ilkeston. He just needs to get one and I am confident the tap will run again!”

Town boast a run that includes no defeats in their last 12 home games and only one loss in the last 22 games, but need to stay in the fight for play-off berths. Stevens said: “It is very tight at the top with us sitting just three points off the play-off places, so we need to again put together a running sequence. We fear no one so going away and getting results is fine by us.”

The Gingerbreads go into tomorrow’s Marine fixture hoping to have left back Ellis Storey back in the team. Stevens said: “Ellis was playing well until his injury and we have missed his attacking runs down the left hand side, which creates distraction and space for the strikers to move into. I am hoping that we have a full squad to choose from.”

Kick-off at The Meres is 3pm.
