A look back on previous meetings with the Mariners

28 December 2019

We were in a rich vein of form when Grimsby arrived in RH11 last February having won six of our previous seven games.

Our first League meeting with the Mariners came in November 2016 when Dermot Drummy was in charge of Crawley.

James Collins opened the scoring in the 31st minute when he converted Adi Yussuf’s cross but Omar Bogle, who was scoring goals for fun that season, levelled on the stroke of half-time.

Jordan Roberts then took centre stage. He scored his first goal for the club on 56 minutes with Collins getting the assist before making it 3-1 11 minutes from time when he netted direct from a corner (main picture).

Bogle got his second in the last minute with a superb strike from 30 yards into the top corner but Reds held on.

Away from home Reds have a decent record at Blundell Park. There have been two League draws, the first in November 2017 when Rhys Murphy cancelled out Sam Jones’ opener in a 1-1 draw. Harry Kewell’s side chiselled out a 0-0 draw last season but Grimsby claimed their first League win against the Reds last season season when they won 1-0 against Gabriele Cioffi's side.
