THE Mariners slipped to their first pre-season defeat at Matlock Town tonight.
It was 1-1 at the break after Scott Neilson had cancelled out a rasping 25 yarder for the home side, but Matlock sealed the win on 70 minutes when Leon Osborne prodded home from close in.
Craig Disley had recovered from a tight hamstring, while Ross Hannah was back at his old club after recovering from a jaw injury.
