ALFRETON TOWN 0 GRIMSBY TOWN 2
Tuesday, October 9
A drab first half at the Impact Arena was brought to life when winger Scott Neilson broke the deadlock with a stunning strike.
Joe Colbeck cut the ball back to the edge of the box and the on-loan wideman planted a magnificent finish into the top left corner.
Lee Jones: "It was a rare moment of quality, but well worth the 90-minute drive to Derbyshire – and sent Town on the way to a vital three points in their title pursuit."
GRIMSBY TOWN 2 KIDDERMINSTER 4
Saturday, October 20
With the Mariners 3-0 down in the FA Cup after less than 20 minutes, they needed a moment of inspiration.
Tenacious midfielder Derek Niven was, perhaps, the unlikely man to step forward, hammering a right-foot drive home from 20 yards out.
Lee Jones: "Niven isn't known for his shooting ability, but proved he can strike a ball with the best of them with this rip-snorter."
GRIMSBY TOWN 5 WOKING 1
Saturday, November 10
Craig Disley set the Mariners on the way to victory when Andy Cook's reverse pass beat Woking's high line and sent the skipper through.
He took the chance early and side-footed past the goalkeeper, before celebrating with the Town bench.
Matt Dannatt: "Disley could have taken the ball on, but instead caught the keeper out by taking the shot early, and brilliantly shaped the ball into the bottom corner."
GRIMSBY TOWN 5 WOKING 1
Saturday, November 10
Full-back Sam Hatton had already scored one free-kick in the game against Woking but, if that was good, his second was even better.
With a short run up, Hatton struck an unstoppable drive that rocketed into the top right-hand corner, giving the keeper no chance.
Matt Dannatt says: "It was a strike to grace any level of football, let alone the Conference – an absolutely superb free-kick."
EBBSFLEET UNITED 1 GRIMSBY TOWN 1
Saturday, December 1
This clash was less than three minutes old when Ross Hannah set Marcus Marshall free down the left, allowing him to cut inside and curl a right-footer into the far corner.
Home keeper Preston Edwards got a touch on it, but the shot was in all the way and the Town fans behind that goal knew it.
Lee Jones: "This goal epitomises Marshall's rising confidence levels since joining the Mariners."
GRIMSBY TOWN 1 WREXHAM 0
Friday, December 21
Ross Hannah finished off a fine Mariners move to hand them what could prove to be three crucial points.
When Craig Disley found the advancing Aswad Thomas with a cross-field ball, the full-back's superb first-touch saw him to burst past his marker. The defender flashed in a superb cross to find Hannah, who had timed his far post run superbly to tap home.
Matt Dannatt says: "Thomas' work on the left flank was superb. His cross was perfect, allowing Hannah to do what he does best."
GRIMSBY TOWN 4 LINCOLN CITY 1
Wednesday, December 26
After Lincoln had scored to get back into the derby, the next goal was always going to be crucial.
Joe Colbeck nodded a cross back to Andy Cook, but the young frontman's header rebounded off the bar and it looked as though the chance had gone.
However, the ball dropped back to Disley, whose scissor-kick crashed in off the bar.
Matt Dannatt says: "It was a superb, acrobatic effort from the skipper that the Lincoln keeper could do nothing about."
GRIMSBY TOWN 1 LINCOLN CITY 1
Tuesday, January 1
The Mariners might have been below their best when Lincoln visited, but there was no questioning the quality of Ian Miller's equaliser.
Joe Colbeck whipped in a free-kick from the left and, after it was touched on, Miller nailed a first-time volley to silence the Imps.
Lee Jones: "Any striker would have been pleased with Miller's shot."
