Grimsby Town 0-4 Salford City EFL League Two

We took all 3 points from our trip to Blundell Park with forward Ian Henderson registering his first hat-trick for the club.

1st Half

Graham made a couple of changes from our previous league fixture against Exeter City, with Elliot and Towell coming in.

The first 20 minutes or so was pretty patchy but we soon settled into the game and with Henderson converting a penalty on 32 minutes, there was only going to be one winner.

Grimsby huffed and puffed in the first half, and kept themselves in the game, nearly grabbing a equalizer just before halftime, but for Easthams big toe goal line clearance.

2nd Half

The second half was very different from the first, with us taking control of the game and another penalty on 63 minutes converted again by Henderson doubled our advantage.

Ashley Hunter delivered a perfect cross from the left to Henderson's head, with the striker comfortably getting his hat-trick from around 6 yards on 76 minutes.

With Henderson getting a rest and substituted, a further penalty in the 93rd minute was converted by Towell.

Easy 0-4 win?

The first half didn't prove to have too much in it, bar Hendersons nicely finished penalty, but our experience and class shone and we were worthy winners.

Overall, our shape was good, defensive unit strong and we always looked a so we had a goal or 4 in us.

Grimsby looked average and I don't think we should get too excited just yet, although a good team performance and hat-trick makes for a very nice weekend.
