Town’s Conference Premier fixture with Grimsby will be now be played on Tuesday, April 15, due to Grimsby reaching the semi-final of the FA Trophy

The clash at Blundell Park was originally scheduled for February 22nd but the second leg of Grimsby’s semi-final with Cambridge falls on that date. The North Lincolnshire side travel to Cambridge for the first-leg before hosting the conclusion the week after for a spot at Wembley.
