Grimsby   3 - 0   Shrewsbury

Grimsby 3-0 Shrewsbury

Grimsby 3-0 Shrewsbury

Grimsby ended a run of 25 games without a win to move within four points of third from bottom side Cheltenham.

Dean Sinclair scored from the spot on the stroke of half-time after Kelvin Langmead fouled Jean Louis Akpro.

Home keeper Nick Colgan raced to block Kevin McIntyre's shot and it was costly for the Shrews as Sinclair tucked in a rebound after Akpro's shot was saved.

Akpro added a sweetly struck left-foot volley into the bottom corner after being played through by Lee Peacock.


Shrewsbury Town manager Paul Simpson told BBC Radio Shropshire:

"Everything about it was disappointing. I don't think it's the worst performance we've had.

"I thought second half they deserved to win the game. we didn't defend the crosses particularly well.

"I'm still adamant that this is a strong enough group of players to get us where we want to go."
