A Grimsby Town side desperate to avenge their stoppage time defeat at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium earlier in the season is what Robins boss Michael Duff is expecting to await his team this weekend.

Conor Thomas' last gasp penalty back in December earned Cheltenham three points with a 2-1 win to steal any share of the spoils away from the Mariners at the death.

He's well aware of the threat Saturday's opponents carry at their Blundell Park home having won their last three games.

"They've got some good players," Duff said. "It's a long way to go. There will be disappointment with the way they conceded against us - I'm sure they'll take that into the game. Obviously we won a penalty in the 92nd minute I think it was.

"Looking at their games recently they went down to Yeovil and demolished Yeovil really. They were really comfortable.

"They've got some good players, people will know about Wes Thomas, but [Elliot] Embleton who plays behind the front two is a very good player."
