Games Of The Season: Grimsby Town (A)

29 May 2019

The Silkmen travelled up to Cleethorpes back in January, as we faced a Grimsby Town side who came into the game on the back of securing four victories from their last five home games.
 
In contrast, Macc were still reeling from suffering a cruel defeat at the hands of Swindon Town the previous week and as such, travelled up to Blundell Park looking to bounce back at the first opportunity.
 
A raucous away following greeted Sol Campbell's men and it was the visitors who unquestionably started the match firmly in the ascendancy.
 
The deadlock was to be broken on 26 minutes, when Michael Rose's tantalising free-kick from the right was clinically finished at close-range by Tyrone Marsh.
 
Seven minutes later, tenacious play from Scott Wilson saw him dispossess Mitchell Rose and this set him free on goal before our leading marksman cooly slide the ball into the back of the net.
 
The second period undoubtedly saw the hosts look to rectify matters, yet in truth they were limited to speculative efforts which rarely threatened to breach Kieran O'Hara's goal.
 
The Manchester United loanee did make one breathtaking stop from Wes Thomas in the closing exchanges, yet Macc held on to secure what proved to be another crucial victory.
 
Here are the match highlights -
