Penney delight as Darlo go top

Published Add your comment

Darlington boss Dave Penney was delighted with his side after they scored twice in 15 minutes to condemn Grimsby to their 22nd league game without a win to move top of League Two.

Billy Clarke and ex-Grimsby midfielder Ricky Ravenhill gave visitors Darlington a dream start and the Mariners a mountain to climb though they did pull a goal back through Jon-Paul Kalala.

"It's a great result. Everybody is expecting you to win because Grimsby have not won for so long so there was a certain amount of pressure on us," he said.

Penney continued: "I thought we started the game well although to be fair we had the wind in the first half. We got a couple of goals and could have had some more.

"I was delighted to get the three points and there is now a little break before we get back into league games so it was nice to finish off with a win.

"I don't think Grimsby had any clear-cut chances. There was a shot from the edge of the box for a goal but no one got in one-on-one with our keeper."
