Scott heralds striker's stunning two-goal response
GRIMSBY Town boss Rob Scott watched Anthony Elding salvage a precious point at Barrow on Tuesday and admitted: "That's the response we wanted."
Elding began the clash at Holker Street on the bench, but made his entrance just after the hour mark – with the Mariners trailing 2-0 – and weighed in with a timely brace and match-changing display.
And Scott was delighted with the 30-year-old's efforts.
"We've told Anthony that Tuesday was the answer we were looking for from him," he said.

"Sometimes you find yourself on the bench, but we want to see a reaction to that – and we did."
"Elds was a massive threat up front, so all credit to him.
"It wasn't just the two goals either, I thought his build-up play was just fantastic.
"He got hold of the ball, he brought in other players around him, he worked the channels, he won his headers.
"That's the Anthony Elding that we know and we want that week-in week-out.
"We've never had a problem with Elds. We know what he's got, it's just that when he's not firing we'll change it around and we'll make no excuses for that."
