20 mins: Halifax’s Danny Holland has the first effort on goal but his header loops harmlessly onto the roof of the Mariners’ net.
23 mins: GOAL! 1-0 TO THE MARINERS. Lee Peacock races clear from midfield and finishes with unerring ease from the right-hand edge of the box.
26 mins: GOAL! EQUALISER FOR HALIFAX – 1-1. The home side respond when Nathan Taylor, looking at least five yards offside, is allowed to advance and round Kenny Arthur to score.
35 mins: Arthur makes amends when he gathers Taylor’s lobbed effort after the Scot’s stray kick lands at the feet of the Halifax attacker.
36 mins: GOAL! MARINERS BACK IN FRONT. Grimsby edge their noses in front again when Nathan Dixon collects a pass from Robert Eagle and curls a neat finish into the bottom corner from 18 yards.
58 mins: BOOKING. Scott Garner is penalized for a shove on Halifax’s Jamie Vardy as the winger ran through on goal.
75 mins: OFF THE WOODWORK! Substitute Scott Metcalfe fires in a left-foot shot for the home side that beats Arthur but cannons back off the foot of the post.
