Barnet FC Manager Martin Allen speaks prior to his sides trip to Grimsby Town on Saturday.
On Saturday we face Grimsby away who have hit form and have the backing of a passionate 8,000 people. It is a club with great history and I used to love watching Alan Buckley's team punching above their weight just a few years ago. I'm really looking forward to Saturday, I just love these special days.
On the injury front, we are missing Elliott Johnson, Dave Tarpey, Harry Taylor, Mauro Vilhete, Jamie Stephens, George Legg, Fuad Sule, Simeon Akinola, Darnell Smith and Ephron Mason-Clark. We have late fitness tests for Ricardo Santos, Dan Sweeney and John Akinde so we have added a couple of Youth Team players to the squad.
Unfortunately, all the training pitches have been flooded this week but we have done our best to prepare the best we can.
It's a long way to go and a difficult journey which costs a lot of money and after our last performance away from home, I can fully understand how most supporters would not want to make the journey.
