Three and Counting!

ROB Scott and Paul Hurst have now gone three games without a win, but have some way to go before having a worse start than their two predecessors. Neil Woods went 23 games before recording his first win (equivalent to half a season!) and Mike Newell chalked up nine blanks when he became Grimsby boss.

Alan Buckley III had to wait four games before getting a win against Accrington Stanley. The manager before him though, Graham Rodger, hit the jackpot in his first game when the Mariners came from behind to beat Boston 3-2.

Town's most successful manager of the modern era, Russell Slade, had to wait just three games before his Grimsby side chalked up their first win against Bury.

Scott and Hurst do have the advantage now of pressure-free games for the rest of the season, some of which are against semi-professional sides, so one would expect it only a matter of time before the Mariners do pick up that elusive first win, but you never know in football!
