Grimsby   2 - 0   Barnet

Mark Hudson

Grimsby 2-0 Barnet

Grimsby saw off Barnet to ensure the pair's battle to avoid relegation will go down to the final day of the season.

The hosts took a deserved lead when Peter Bore chipped the ball back in for defender Rob Atkinson to volley in.

Home keeper Nick Colgan made two saves from Mark Hughes before Hudson went clear and fired into the far corner in the third minute of added time.

Grimsby, whose last game is at Burton, are now a point behind Barnet, who host already-promoted Rochdale on Saturday.

The Mariners have a goal difference that is six inferior to Barnet's so must win if they are to have a chance of staying up.

For the out-of-form Bees, a victory would guarantee their League Two status and send Grimsby down.

606: DEBATE

The Mariners have now won four and drawn one of their last six games to set up the possibility of an amazing escape from relegation.

Barnet by contrast have lost six consecutive games and replaced manager Ian Hendon with former boss Paul Fairclough in midweek.

Grimsby should have gone ahead when Hudson beat the offside trap and bore down on goal, but Barnet keeper Jake Cole saved at his feet before Michael Coulson put the rebound into the side-netting.

The hosts' pressure finally told when Bore collected a clearance from a corner and crossed for Atkinson to score.

Colgan kept out a shot and a header from Hughes before Hudson broke through and finished with aplomb to spark a pitch invasion.


Barnet manager Paul Fairclough told BBC London 94.9:

"We came here today and it was like a gladiatorial ring. It was a full house and I think the crowd made the difference today.

"Relegation would have a catastrophic effect. We would struggle and it would have reverberations right through the club.

"The last time the club went down it was a shocking state of affairs and it took a long, long time to recover."
