The Game

4 minutes into the game and Grimsby Town are already ahead. After some good play through midfield the ball was passed to Poole who took on 3 men before driving a low hard finish into the bottom corner.

Lincoln have had a chance to equalise Charlee Adams picks up the ball and slots it through to Fairhurst who skies it miles over. Grimsby nearly make it 2 after 30 minutes as Poole dribbles down the right wing pulls it back for Tounkara who shoots just wide. Tounkara misses another chance Poole again gets down the wing plays to Kerr who slots Tounkara through only for the striker to miss. Half Time Lincoln 0-1 Grimsby

Five minutes into the second half Grimsby double their lead McLaughlin plays an incisive ball through to Neilson who fires the ball into the net in front of the travelling supporters.

And it’s a quickfire double for Grimsby Hatton and Southwell who replaced Tounkara at half-time worked the ball done the line a cross from Hatton was met by Poole who headed it past the Lincoln keeper.

Lincoln were now getting more of the ball but had no major chances and Grimsby were content on the 3-0 scoreline. Full Time Lincoln 0-3 Grimsby


It was an easy success that we expected but the fact we beat our local rivals so easily and with such clinical finishing boosts my hope of a title challenge.
