Astrit Ajdarevic is Hereford's only absentee for their home clash against second-bottom Grimsby.

The on-loan Leicester midfielder will be out of action for around 10 days due to a hamstring injury, also ruling him out of Tuesday`s trip to Bournemouth.

Otherwise, chairman and caretaker manager Graham Turner has a full compliment of players to choose from.

The Bulls go into the game knowing their Football League status is all but secure, although one point against the Mariners on Saturday will make it mathematically impossible for Turner`s side to be caught.

Yet having beaten Darlington 1-0 on Monday to secure a fourth successive victory - the club`s best run of results in over two years - the Bulls boss is looking up and not over his shoulder.

Hereford are currently 16th in League Two with 18 points left to play for, leaving Turner with aspirations of a top-half finish.

Grimsby will assess goalkeeper Nick Colgan's groin injury ahead of the crunch clash at Edgar Street.

Colgan and back-up keeper Leigh Overton missed the Easter games with Northampton and Accrington after picking up knocks in training last week.

Although Hull keeper Mark Oxley joined on a seven-day emergency loan deal and deputised for the two matches, he has been recalled by the Premier League club.

It leaves manager Neil Woods again sweating on the fitness of Colgan as Town look to close the seven-point gap to safety.

However, Woods will have on-loan centre-back Olly Lancashire available after the club successfully appealed against the red card he received against Northampton a week ago.

Striker Lee Peacock (Achilles) is not expected to play.
