IF EVER there was a performance that summed up the positives of Russell Slade’s second season in charge of the Mariners then it was this one – a 3-0 win at Cheltenham on a cold Friday night in October.

THERE was a time when winning away wasn’t a regular occurrence for the Mariners. They went ten months without an away win between November 2003 and September 2004, getting relegated in the process.
So a debut Friday night trip to Cheltenham wasn’t one that Grimsby fans were relishing.
