We did not deserve to win - Slade
Grimsby manager Russell Slade
Slade is set to discuss a new deal to stay with Grimsby
Grimsby manager Russell Slade was in philosophical mood after his side's 1-0 defeat by Cheltenham in the League Two play-off final.

The Mariners were denied a penalty when Andy Parkinson was brought down by Gavin Caines before Cheltenham went on to take the lead.

And Slade said: "We felt we had a good claim for a penalty and obviously big moments like that turn matches.

"To be fair we possibly did not deserve it on the day."

He added: "Cheltenham started tremendously well but we didn't get into the game until the 30th minute and they adjusted to the nature of the pitch better than us.

"It's a hard result to swallow after being in the promotion places for so long this season.

"We need to have a rest and come back next year."

Slade is set to discuss a new contract at the club during the summer and added: "I've got to sit down with the chairman but we're very close to doing something."
