Grimsby vs Ebbsfleet United: Home sweet home for Mariners
Grimsby continued their superb home form with a 3-1 win over struggling Ebbsfleet.
It took less than a minute for the Mariners to take the lead as Marcus Marshall turned in Andy Cook's left-wing cross.
The visitors' chances of a fightback were hit with the loss of Craig Stone and Stefan Payne to injury in the opening 25 minutes.
And when Andy Cook made it 2-0 seven minutes before the interval by turning in Ross Hannah's right-wing cross, it appeared as if the Mariners were coasting to a fourth consecutive home league win.

But Fleet fought back and Liam Enver-Marum almost handed them a first-half lifeline, but his header from Gareth Gwillim's corner flew over the crossbar.
Enver-Marum fared better in the second half with a 74th-minute goal after he ran at the hosts' defence before firing in low from the edge of the area.
But Craig Disley's brilliant 30-yard strike secured the win and a 12th home victory of the campaign to move Grimsby up to third.
