Marcus Bignot can call on new recruits for Grimsby's game against Notts County

Grimsby boss Marcus Bignot will be boosted by a trio of new signings as the Mariners look to get back on track against Notts County at Blundell Park.

Midfielder Chris Clements signed from Mansfield for an undisclosed fee on Thursday and Jamey Osborne and Akwasi Asante have joined from Bignot's former club Solihull Moors. All three will go straight into the squad for Saturday's game.

Bignot has no new injury worries but may look to make changes after his side's heavy 3-0 loss to Exeter last week.

Sean McAllister could start after a successful comeback from his groin strain while defender Gavin Gunning is also being lined up for his first start.

Notts County boss Kevin Nolan has the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from.

The former Bolton, Newcastle and West Ham midfielder halted a miserable club record run of 10 successive defeats in his first game in charge last weekend as the Magpies drew 0-0 with neighbours Mansfield and he is likely to name an unchanged team.

Louis Laing has returned to Motherwell following the end of his loan spell, meaning Haydn Hollis, Thierry Audel and Richard Duffy are the only available central defenders at Nolan's disposal.

Duffy and Audel were impressive against the Stags and were singled out for praise by Nolan for their performance.
