Grimsby   1 - 1   Darlington

Grimsby 1-1 Darlington

Grimsby 1-1 Darlington

Curtis Main's late strike earned 10-man Darlington a point at Grimsby but it was not enough to stop Colin Todd resigning as Darlo boss after the game.

The home side went ahead when Ron Atkinson rose at the near post to plant a firm header past Russell Hoult.

Darlington's Jamie Chandler was given a straight red card after an off-the-ball clash with Danny North.

Main was left unmarked to head home Tony Kane's right-wing cross and then Hoult pulled off a fine save late on.
