NAS Bashir says his Hayes and Yeading side have nothing to fear from tomorrow's trip to Blundell Park.
Hayes and Yeading have yet to pick up a point on their travels so far, but boss Bashir believes his side can capitalise on a poor start to the season from the Mariners.
They are actually below Hayes and Yeading in the Blue Square Bet Premier table in 18th and the visitors will be aiming to capitalise on any anxiety in the home ranks.
"With the teams we have already faced away from home this season, we are not fearful of anybody," said Bashir (pictured). "We will give any team that we come up against a good game.
"It was our worst performance of the season (1-0 win against Tamworth), but we have got that out of the way. We will try and put in a better performance against Grimsby and hopefully go on a run now to get ourselves up the table.
"Our performances away from home so far have been encouraging, particularly against Fleetwood and Cambridge - they were games that we should have got points from.
"Some of the players have only played together for seven games and they are still getting to know each other. But we are taking major strides very quickly and we are going to get better."
Hayes and Yeading did win 2-1 at the same venue last August with the now departed skipper Jamie Hand scoring one of the goals of the season,
Hand's loan move to Luton Town means only Tom Cadmore remains from last season's successful side at Blundell Park.
Curtis Ujah is expected to shake off a knock in time to start at centre-back, while Sam Argent is pushing for a return at right-back in place of Harrison Bayley.
