League Two strugglers Grimsby upset the formbook as they progressed to the quarter-finals of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy with a 2-0 win at Hartlepool.

Only six minutes had gone when Mike Newell's side took the lead, as Peter Sweeney's sweetly struck free-kick from 35 yards flew around the wall and beyond Scott Flinders in the home goal.

And the Mariners doubled their lead after 34 minutes, when Adam Proudlock latched onto Rob Atkinson's searching pass beyond the home defence and deftly lifted the ball over the advancing Flinders.

And although Grimsby had Danny Boshell sent off with nine minutes to go for a second bookable offence, they comfortably held on.
