Town started poorly it was no surprise when a header by Smith from a corner on 15 minutes gave the visitors the lead.

Alan Buckley responded by bringing on Gary Jones for Sam Hird, and switching to 4-4-2.

Town's afternoon got worse when Tom Newey had to go off injured on 23 minutes, with Ryan Bennett coming on.

The Daggers were awarded a penalty on 29 minutes when Clarke fouled top scorer Strevens in a clumsy challenge, which Rainford converted to put the visitors two goals up.

Town had more possession but did not come close to scoring in the remainder of the first half.

Grimsby made their final substiution at the start of the second half, bringing on Peter Bore for Paul Bolland.

Town failed to make the most of their possession in the second half, and conceded a third goal when Strevens benefitted from a mistake by Fenton and lashed the ball past Barnes on 81.

Within four minutes poor defending from a corner allowed Rainford a free header which led to a fourth goal.

Gary Jones scored a consolation for Town on 89 minutes, but it was far too little too late.
