The Lambs hosted a highly talented EFL League Two side Grimsby Town last Thursday. Grimsby opened the scoring in the fourth minute when a great passing move opened up the home defence for Alec Caldwell to slot home from eight yards. The visitors continued their really bright start with Summerfield showing his class in the middle of the park. His fine strike in the 10th minute flashed inches wide of the far post. Grimsby’s Osborne then saw his fierce shot clip the top of the cross bar. The Lambs first real effort on goal came in the 25th minute when a good move ended with Dan Sullivan’s effort well saved by goal keeper Phillip. The home team continued to work very hard, but it was the visitors that were dictating the play, with the Lambs having to defend with some resolve to deny Grimsby from increasing their lead. In the 40th minute the visitors deservedly increased their lead when a great cross from Musto was fired home by Peaball. The second half was dominated by Grimsby and they added another five goals as the Lambs tired after playing a physically tiring game against Cardiff just two days before. The Lambs did manage to get on the score sheet with Adan Carter scoring mid way through the half.
