Rob Scott disappointed with manner of Grimsby Town's defeat at Braintree
GRIMSBY Town joint boss Rob Scott gave a stark assessment of his side’s disappointing 2-0 defeat at Braintree last night, insisting “we just wasn’t good enough.”
Two goals from former Mariners trialist Luke Daley was enough to condemn them to a humbling at the Amlin Stadium for the second season in a row.
The result, combined with Wrexham’s 1-0 victory at Gateshead, meant that Town relinquished their spot at the top of the Blue Square Bet Premier.
And, after watching his side slip to their first defeat this year, Scott admitted it was disappointing to lose their long unbeaten record.

He said: “It’s our first defeat since November so credit to the lads for going that long without defeat, but we’re disappointed with the manner of it.
“We were very disjointed and very singular in our approach. It just seemed as though everyone was looking after themselves instead of each other last night.
“We’re disappointed, they’re disappointed and so are the fans.”
The Mariners were a shadow of themselves on a difficult night in Essex, and Scott insists his side didn’t do enough to take anything back with them up the M11.
He added: “Ultimately we’ve got to be coming to places like this and winning. We weren’t good enough and that’s the crux of it really.
“We’re not going to bang on about it. Let’s be fair, Hyde away was the last time when we had to say we weren’t good enough.
“We’re not going to vilify anyone – those players know you can’t afford to carry that many players in a team and expect to get anything out of it.
“This place is not a happy hunting ground for us, but we’ll have to shake ourselves down and get on with it. Train well and look to perform better on Saturday.
“I can’t remember the last time when we’ve all had an off-night like that. We knew conditions weren’t going to be good. The pitch was terrible, but that’s no excuse. You’ve got to do the right things and make the right decisions to get something out of the game.
“In fairness, that’s what we’ve done this season. But we didn’t do enough on this occasion and that’s what happens.”
