Another very BIG one at Harrison Park

Tim Grice eager to return.

THERE have been some BIG games at Harrison Park over the years, and tomorrow’s visit from Cleethorpes Town ranks right up there with them.
Cleethorpes were the last team to beat Leek Town before the Blues set off on their run of 12 wins in a row, which have taken them to the top of the BetVictr NPL South East Division.
Leek’s lost 2-1 after making the long-haul up to the north Lincolnshire coast on Setember 14 where Rob Stevenson scored what was to be their 12th minute consolation goal.
Tomorrow’s return clash should attract a big crowd to the Macclesfield Road ground as Neil Baker’s side seek revenge and make it 13 wins on the bounce.
There wil be the added attraction for fans of maybe witnessing Blues record scorer Tim Grice reaching the 200-goals mark for the club.
Grice needs just two more goals to achieve his double-century and is eager to get back in the side after being rested from the last game with a broken hand.
The striker has been given the all-clear by a specialist to return to action wearing a lightweight cast, but he will need clearance from the match official.
Blues boss Baker told The Sentinel’s Jim Hannah: “We are keeping our fingers crossed the referee is happy to let him play with protection on his hand.”
Leek go into the game against the team third in the table a healthy eight points clear of Stamford in second spot.
Next Tuesday Leek are away to Chasetown who have replaced mnager Scott Dundas with Mark Swann
