The Mariners overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit to beat Braintree and secure a place in the National League promotion final against Forest Green Rovers.

Town striker Padraig Amond sent the goalkeeper the wrong way from the penalty spot to level the tie and send the semi-final into extra-time.

Braintree were reduced to 10 men as Mark Phillips saw a second yellow card.

And Omar Bogle's header from a free-kick after 110 minutes secured Town a place at Wembley on 15 May.

The Mariners had reached the play-offs for four consecutive years after being relegated from the Football League in 2010, but this was only the second time Town had  reached the final.
