Goals from Jon Taylor and 2 from Michael Smith gave Paul Warnes team the victory. Jamie Proctor played in the game as he comes back from a serious injury picked up last August.

Warney gave his thoughts to; “I was really happy with the work out and there were no injuries, All the senior professionals played 60 minutes and some like Will Vaulks played more. We were a little leggy from the running yesterday afternoon, so we weren't as sharp or as zippy as I would like. But we were really pleased with the performances, and we are now just trying to get them sharper as the days go on. It was good to see Smudge get a couple of goals, and Tayls did really well and got a goal to cap a good performance."

“It was good for the new lads to get used to the surroundings here, and the three young first-year professionals Akeem Hinds, Reece McGinley and Joshua Kayode all did well."

“The best thing for me was that we played against a 3-5-2, and in fairness Grimsby kept the ball really well and it was a better game than I could have hoped for, as in it was more like a Championship game than a League One fixture."

“We will watch the game back on Monday and re-enforce the messages. As the game went on we got better and better, pressed higher and higher, and created more chances. Tayls hit the bar, we had a good effort from a free-kick as well and Kyle Vassell had a couple of good attempts on goal."

“Bally looked sharp, and Procs played the first 15 minutes so it was great to see him on the pitch. He has a long way to go but he is getting there. It was a good day at the office.

“Billy Jones came on in midfield for me. He did really well and looked really sharp. He was composed on the ball and I was really pleased with him. It has been a good end to a good week.”
