Grimsby Town accounts manager Steve Wraith has labelled Hatters fans ‘cocky’ ahead of tomorrow night’s Skrill Premier clash at Blundell Park, writes Mike Simmonds.

Wraith is expecting a bumper turnout from visiting supporters and feels that Town followers already believe the title is in the bag as they lead the table by 14 points.

He told the Grimsby Telegraph: “We’ve already sold a fair few tickets to the Luton fans, and I think there could be 300-500 of their fans at Blundell Park tomorrow night.

“The last few times we’ve played them the matches have been televised, so they haven’t shown their full force and brought massive away support before.

“There has been a lot of interest from their end, and they probably think they’re coming here for another win to take them closer to the title.

“They’re cocky enough to think they’ve won it already – and maybe they have – but we can certainly put a spanner in the works, and help our chances of going up as well.

“I’m banging the drum and asking the fans – ‘come down and help us beat the other big hitter in this league.’

“Behind Luton, there is nobody bigger than us in this division, so it’s the Conference’s top-two going head-to-head.

“We’re a big club and our fans are fantastic. We need that support now more than ever.”
