Bristol Rovers 0-0 Grimsby Town

9 August 2014

GRIMSBY Town started their season with a goalless draw against Conference new-boys Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Stadium.


In a first half of few chances, the newly-relegated hosts came closest to opening the scoring but defender Mark McChrystal failed to convert a corner at the far post.


After the break, the game opened up and the Mariners had their best chance to break the deadlock through Lenell John-Lewis but he could not find the net when the ball fell to him after an effort from Craig Disley was blocked on the line.


Town were rarely seriously tested in front of a big, 7,000-plus crowd but their 452 travelling supporters would have left satisfied with a point against one of the early promotion favourites.
