Grimsby Borough suffer away loss at Rossington Main
ANDY Taylor netted his second goal in two games – but Grimsby Borough slipped to a 3-1 defeat on the road against ten-man Rossington Main.
The Wilderness Boys travelled to the Doncaster area six players down on their previous match, when they beat Hallam 1-0.
Borough started well and saw their opponents reduced to ten men, for an apparent stamp, on 20 minutes.
Taylor should have opened the scoring when he pushed a shot just wide of the post.

From the goal-kick, Jonathan Mirfin was allowed a free shot at goal, but Borough stopper Mike Sleeth pulled off a great reaction save to push the ball out for a corner.
There was no stopping Mirfin moments later, though, when he fired home after Borough were unable to clear a corner.
Five minutes later, the hosts doubled their lead amid sloppy Borough defending.
But the visitors pulled a goal back within the first minute of the second half. Lewis Buckthorp won possession and picked out Taylor and he beat the keeper with an unstoppable drive into the top corner.
Jordan Ramsden's shot almost led to an equaliser, but nobody was following up when the Rossington goalkeeper spilled the shot.
Borough were caught pushing forward late on and, in the 94th minute, Clark scored to ensure the three points went to the hosts.
