The Mariners and the Cobblers know that a huge 3rd Round tie is just 90 minutes away

Grimsby Town of the Conference meet League Two strugglers Northampton Town at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon with the thoughts of the home club in particular drifting towards Sunday's draw for the next round when Premier League and Championship clubs enter the competition."The dream ticket is to beat Northampton and then draw Manchester United away," director John Fenty told the Grimsby Telegraph."Then we can bow out and concentrate on the other two jobs in hand – returning to the Football League and progressing in the FA Trophy again."For the Cobblers the game presents another opportunity to continue their slow, upward progression of recent weeks which began with a professional display away to another non-league side, Bishops Stortford, in the 1st round of the FA Cup.“Grimsby are doing very well, their home record is good but if we go there in the right frame of mind and continue the way we have been playing of late there is no reason we can’t get a result," assistant manager Andy King told the official NTFC website.http://www.ntfc.co.uk/http://www.grimsbytelegraph.co.uk/
