Hughes strike sinks Mariners: Match Review

Published Add your comment

Lee Hughes' 22nd goal of the season brought Notts County the points at Grimsby.

The striker hammered home in the 69th minute to consign Grimsby to a club record 20th league game without a win.

Ricky Ravenhill was in the thick of the first half action. The County midfielder tested Nick Colgan with two volleys and then sent a third inches wide.

But he blotted his copy book with a yellow card for a two-footed tackle on Peter Sweeney and was fortunate not to be sent off after hauling back Wes Fletcher.

Grimsby's Tommy Wright headed over the bar from a Sweeney corner and then the striker was booked for a two-footed lunge on Neal Bishop.

The crucial goal came from a long clearance from keeper Kasper Schmeichel which was missed by centre-back Paul Linwood. Hughes raced clear and hit a right-foot shot into the far corner.

Grimsby went close to an equaliser when an overhead kick from substitute Nathan Jarman was clawed away by Schmeichel.
