Grimsby manager Neil Woods was delighted to secure a 2-0 win over bottom club Darlington which keeps alive their hopes of avoiding the drop.

Defender Oliver Lancashire gave the Mariners the lead before Jean Louis Akpa Akpro netted a second in first-half stoppage-time. Although Darlington pressured in the second half Grimsby held on for the win which leaves them with a fighting chance to secure League Two survival.

"It wasn't a game for the purist that's for sure. If we slip up we go down, it's as simple as that. It wasn't our best performance. We just needed to win and we did that," said Woods.

"The vital point of the game was a save from Nick Colgan in the first half. Then the second goal just before the break was a killer from Darlington's point of view.

"I am obviously delighted with the result. It's been quite a ride since I took over and it's not over yet. I have the backing of the players and most of our supporters and with Barnet to play next week it is crucial that we still have something to play for in the game."
