Lloyd Macklin from Swindon has joined on a month's loan and I predict he will be our super sub! Well, only 18 but apparently very fast he had just broken into the first team (1 start and about 9 sub appareances) when he fractured his leg. At least it is another option and tonight we will need it. On the BBC website Buckle has said "We've got a young side and with that comes a little bit of naiveity but that's something we have to suffer. Yes, so why did he get rid of all the experience?

Playing this tonight is a bonus in my eyes. If we pull off a shock Grimsby are going to be under a whole heap of pressure to get a result tomorrow. Plus it gives us an extra day to recover before the more important Cheltenham game.
I gave up on making it to Sheffield. Getting from St Pancras to Highgate took almost an hour and the M1 was gridlocked from the M25 junction until I waved the white flag and turned back home at Junction 9. I do love a game up north but there's also a time to be sensible. Come on the boys!
Ok are we all ready for another evening of missery? Hope it doesnt work out that way our luck has to change soon though with so many new faces in the side a positive result seems unlikely. Anyway prepare yourselves for the worse and any thing else is a bonus.
