Match Report: Grimsby Town 1-1 Cheltenham Town

3 February 2018

On taking the lead after three minutes through Simeon Jackson

''It was a good start, we got on top and got out of the tracks.

''It was a difficult game and a difficult pitch for both teams in all fairness and they had a few opportunites but I think we had more so I'm just disappointed to be honest with the goal that we did concede.

''Pell's standing in an offside position and is offside so I'm disappointed with that but the linesman and the referee haven't seen it.

On losing Danny Collins to injury

''It wasn't helpful but it was an opportunity for Rhys (Hall-Johnson) who came on and did great on his debut.

''There were a few players out there with not too many league games behind them like Vernam and Malik (Wilkes).

''It was good for them to get that experience and i thought they did great.''

On not getting the second goal during the game

''Yeah we would've liked to have kicked on and get that second and that' exactly what we talked about at half time.

''If we could've gone and done that, I think we'e have put the game beyond them.

''But we looked threatening and Malik looked a threat on the left hand side getting beyond their back four but we just couldn't get that goal.

''So whilst it's 1-0 they're still in the game, they're always gonna be a threat.''
