Grimsby Town 1, Braintree Town 0
THE Mariners earned this Skrill Conference victory over Braintree thanks to Lennell John-Lewis’s first-half goal.
John-Lewis put Grimsby ahead after slotting home Alex Rodman’s cut-back from the by-line.
The goalscorer almost put through his own net in the second half when his defensive header from Kenny Davis’s corner looped over the bar.
Andy Cook had the chance to kill off the game but his lob over Nathan McDonald from 20 yards sailed wide.
