Non- League Day Fever at the Meres

2 weeks ago By Callum Boyle

Grantham will be looking to continue their impressive home form on Saturday when they face Stafford Rangers.

The Gingerbreads will be in a buoyant mood after an impressive 7-1 win over a poor Rushall Olympic side on Tuesday night. The result saw Town move up to 7th in the table, just four points off the last play-off place which is held by Farsley Celtic, who are currently 5th in the table.

Opponents Stafford Rangers meanwhile crashed out of the FA Cup on Tuesday after a 4-1 defeat away to AFC Telford in a 3rd qualifying round replay in the FA Cup. Rangers haven't had too much to shout about in the league either, sitting in 18th position.

Grantham will also go into the game with confidence knowing that they have only dropped points at home in the league twice all season in defeats against Coalville Town and Halesowen whereas Stafford have been in similar form in terms of away games, only losing twice on the road this season.

Manager of Grantham, Adam Stevens, has said that he wants to make sure his side put on a good show for the fans that turn up on Saturday: "The last two home games for the fans have been excellent to watch and we want that to continue by putting in another great performance." Stevens also added that he hoped the celebrations of non-league day would encourage fans to come to the Meres more often: "Hopefully we will be able to get a good crowd for a great occasion. I really hope that if we put in a good performance, we will be able to get a few more fans on board and add to the excellent support we already have."

Rhys Lewis will definitely be out of Saturday's game after picking up a one match suspension following his red card against Marine last Saturday. Stefan Galinski also remains a doubt after picking up and injury at Marine away. The rest of the squad however is available.
