Traditionally we have come a cropper in games like this. Show Grimsby the respect they derserve and we will go through.

I think this is a great draw for us...in recent years we've had tough away draws so this should be a potential confidence booster - I'd swap a top half finish all day for the league cup!!!!

A Carling Cup win WOULD mean a place in Europe, but players also look at your League finish when deciding if they want to join you (or leave you!!!) don't they so we MUST finish in the top 10 this season at least

Hopefully an easy passage against the codheads, I hope you stick loads past them, especially as we have them in the league 3 days later.
