Frustration mounts for Maidenhead United manager ahead of Grimsby Town visit
Maidenhead United manager Alan Devonshire has admitted feeling frustrated with the accumulation of injuries ahead of his side’s clash with Grimsby Town.
The Mariners head to York Road tomorrow as they aim to continue their unbeaten start to the season and extend their four-game winning streak.
They will face a team that has struggled in more than one title recently, with the Magpies looking to end a four-game losing streak, having started the season with back-to-back wins over Halifax and Dover.

Their chances have taken a heavy blow, however, with more blows to deal with for Devonshire, as well as a less than ideal schedule that saw them collide with Torquay, Stockport and Notts County in preparation for tomorrow’s clash. .
“I know the fans have been [frustrated] but I doubt they’re as frustrated as I am right now, ”Devonshire said.
“We had a few injuries and I wasn’t able to field the strongest team I wanted to field. Upstairs we’re fine, but it’s elsewhere that hurts us.
“As a result, we lost four on the rebound, but I think we were competitive in most games – it’s not like we’ve been beaten.
“The boys also faced four top teams and we have another coming to us on Saturday, Grimsby.
“We’re going to give him everything we have, but a few more players might be missing for this game with George Wells, Dan Sparkes, James Holden and Remy Clerima.
“There are a few shots in the team, but I don’t want to give their names because that will only alert the other team.”
It doesn’t look like Maidenhead will be in a position to bring any new faces to the cover until tomorrow either, with Devonshire admitting he “doesn’t know” if there are more signings.
“At the end of the day, there is a lot of money flowing in the National League and we only have a small budget.
“We just had to go week after week and hope to get a few of them back by our next game.”
