We might be rock bottom at the weekend... then going into a game against potential still table toppers morecambe the week after :? :shock:


Concerned this will happen and then the government will buckle to pressure regarding a ‘circuit break’, which will inevitably go on longer than the proposed couple of weeks, and we’ll be left down there for months on end.

Side note, was there any rules put in to place for what would happen if the season was curtailed again?

Maybe we should cancel it now, we finish 22nd and down go down. Excellent.

FT: Cheltenham Town 1 Grimsby Town 3 (HT: 1-2)
An excellent away win for the Mighty Mariners who scored their first goals of the season to stop Cheltenham going top of the league and to push the Stags down to 22nd. The turning point in the game was in the 39th minute when the Robins' keeper, Josh Griffiths, let James Tilley's shot from the edge of the area go straight through his hands into the top of the net. Cheltenham dominated possession in the 2nd half as they had all game (60% possession) but they could not find an equaliser. They were restricted to a long shot from Liam Sercombe and then in the 87th minute James McKeown made a great save from Sercombe again. Grimsby grabbed a late 3rd goal in the 94th minute to seal the game when the Cheltenham defence stopped as James Hanson was clearly offside but Owen Windsor on loan from West Brom ran through to put the ball past the onrushing Griffiths.

The first half had been very entertaining with Cheltenham making the running and looking very dangerous from set pieces and Ben Tozer's long throws assisted by cunningly placed towels. Steve Evans would not have been happy. Cheltenham should have had a penalty when Luke Waterfall clearly stopped George Lloyd's shot going in by pushing it with his arm against the post. It was a penalty and a sending off but referee, Paul Howard, missed it. Grimsby were not afraid to play long balls to their quick and small front three of James Tilley (22) (on loan from Brighton) Owura Edwards (20) (on loan from Bristol City); and Montel Gibson (22). They were very lively on the counter attack and Owura Edwards was the star of the show. He is a real player and he gave Grimsby the lead after catching Will Boyle in possession on the edge of the area and curling a left foot shot into the corner of the net. Cheltenham equalised when George Lloyd pounced on a Luke Waterfall error and played the ball to Liam Sercombe inside the area on the left and he squared the ball for Andy Williams ("I love you baby") to slot home his third goal of the season. Montel Gibson could have had four goals for Grimsby. He had one ruled out for offside, went down after rounding the keeper but didn't get the penalty and then blasted two wide.

Grimsby played a 3-4-3 formation against Cheltenham's usual 3-5-2. Ian Holloway said after the game he deliberately played a quick three up front to get at Cheltenham's three centre backs (Raglan, Tozer and Boyle) as normally they do not have players on top of them. Grimsby's defence of Ludwig Ohman, Luke Waterfall and Matty Pollock were not great at the back especially in the first half and certainly not as good on the ball as Raglan or Boyle who are prepared to push much higher up the pitch.

Ian Holloway's usual entertaining interview is on BBC Radio Humberside 22m 30s

Matty Blair played for Cheltenham and Chris Clements was on the bench. Matt Green was on the bench for Grimsby. Entertaining pre-match discussion by BBC Radio Gloucester commentators on Matt Green's "fairly unsuccessful" loan spell at Cheltenham. 23 appearances and no goals. They did point out he had scored over 147 goals since his loan spell at Cheltenham in 2011.
