Elding started for the Mariners, with Cook on the bench.

After a nervy opening Town gradually got in their stride and Neilson had Town's first chance of note.

Alfreton almost scored an own goal when a terrible backpass by Meadows almost beat his own 'keeper. From the ensuing corner Alfreton broke and McKeown made a great save from Arnold.

On 39 minutes Town broke the deadlock when Colbeck brokem, pulled the ball back to Neilson who curved it into the corner.

Elding was booked for raising his elbow, but it could have been red.

Grimsby ended the first half deservedly winning 1-0. The second half Town will be kicking up the hill.

Alfreton regained the initiative in the second half and Pearson had to make a goalline clearance.

The pressure continued and McKeown had to make a brilliant save to deny Clayton.

Town wrapped up the points with a goal against the run of play with five minutes to go. Disley set up Hannah who shot passed Stewart.
