The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -


NOR­MALLY, un­happy play­ers are a bad thing but Grimsby Town boss Mar­cus Bignot has no prob­lem with some of his play­ers be­ing less than con­tent at not get­ting into the start­ing 11.

And Bignot has chal­lenged the fringe play­ers to cre­ate the right at­mos­phere as they push each other for start­ing spots dur­ing the busy Christ­mas sched­ule.

“I’m a re­al­is­tic man­ager. You are only ev­ery go­ing to be happy if you’re play­ing,” he said.

“But if they are not play­ing then I will tell them why. At least they know the rea­sons and that means you get re­spect.

“All play­ers in the squad can help cre­ate a good en­vi­ron­ment, which helps cre­ate suc­cess.”
