Tomorrow the Mariners welcome high-flying Stevenage to Blundell Park in League Two, kick off 3pm.
Paul Hurst’s side will be looking for a reaction to last weekend’s disappointing defeat to Doncaster Rovers and register our first victory in League Two since the 3-1 win at Stockport County last month. While in-form Stevenage have lost only once in their last thirteen games and come to Cleethorpes second in League Two.
Ahead of the clash, we have created this match preview to bring you all the key information you need to know.
As of this afternoon, we have issued just over 7,000 tickets for tomorrow’s game.
There is limit availability in all stands and supporters are advised to secure theirs early if they are yet to purchase. The Lower has completely sold out and only restricted view seats remain in the Upper.

John McAtee might be in contention for a place in the starting eleven after his cameo and goal last weekend against Doncaster Rovers.
Jordan Maguire-Drew and Danilo Orsi have trained all week and should be in the squad.
However, Paul Hurst revealed that a couple of players who played last weekend have picked up an injury and won’t be available.

Tomorrow’s game will only be the 11th ever meeting the two clubs, with Stevenage winning six of those encounters, the Mariners two and the other two ending in a draw.
The first meeting between the two sides came during the 2016-17 season when a Omar Bogle hat-trick helped the Mariners to an emphatic 5-2 victory at Blundell Park.
In the last meeting, Stevenage scored an injury time winner to condemn Town to a 2-1 defeat during our last season in League Two in 2020-21.
Due to World Cup starting this weekend, tomorrow’s game against Stevenage is eligible to be live streamed to supporters in the UK and oversees on Mariners TV. Match passes are available for purchase by clicking here.
All Mariners TV subscribers will be able to access BBC Radio’s commentary as usual from 2pm.
Highlights of the game will be available on YouTube on Sunday morning, while extended highlights will be on Mariners TV in the afternoon.
We will of course be wearing our famous black and white stripes with red socks, while Stevenage will be wearing all purple.
