Town boss Ian Holloway was delighted after seeing his side overcome all odds to register their first win of the season at Cheltenham Town tonight. 

Watch all of the goals and see Ollie’s reaction on iFollow Mariners now.  

Speaking after the game, he said: It’s a very tough situation. For the group, that’s the first time that team has played together, and there’s no point in sugar-coating it, that’s going to be tough.

“Every one of them is starting to understand what we need to do, and we played a really good team here.

“That’s what you do. You build some belief and strength. I took a gamble, I wanted to get at their back three because not many people do, they’re so well-organised, and I took a risk playing 3-4-3.

“It could have backfired, but it didn’t.

“There were signs of us being a really good outfit, and as I say we played a really, really good team, so I’m absolutely delighted. They’ve been together a long time, they had success last year, and he’s added to it, he didn’t lose anybody.

“I’m absolutely delighted with the spirit, it’s going to be a lovely trip back home.”

 “Normally you need five or six weeks to do pre-season training, but we haven’t seen each other for 14 days before last Wednesday. It’s quite remarkable.

“It’s nice because I said we might have to change our name to Grimsby Town Nil!,” he added.
