Darlington 0-2 Grimsby

Darlington 0-2 Grimsby

Grimsby boosted their prospects of staying up with a vital win over relegated Darlington.

The home side's leading scorer Tadhg Purcell missed a good chance to put them in front in the 18th minute.

And the Mariners took advantage in the 21st when Oliver Lancashire headed in Peter Sweeney's corner.

Grimsby doubled their advantage in the final moments of the first half courtesy of Jean Louis Akpa Akapro's neat side-foot finish from 10 yards.
