Last Time We Met Grimsby Town

5 October 2018

The Valiants face a trip to Blundell Park this Saturday as they meet Grimsby Town in Sky Bet League Two, but what happened when the two sides last faced off?

It was March 2018 when Vale last came up against the Mariners and that was also away from home, but Neil Aspin's men had to settle for a point despite a commanding performance.

David Worrall had given the Valiants a one-goal lead after just 10 minutes with a perfectly placed finish, but it proved to be a frustrating afternoon in Lincolnshire.

Michael Tonge wasted an opportunity to double his side's advantage on the hour mark, but his penalty was beaten away by James McKeown.

From that point onwards, it was the hosts who were knocking on the door, and they eventually found a leveller in stoppage time. James Berrett found space inside the area to fire past Ryan Boot and salvage a point in what was Michael Jolley's first game as Grimsby boss.

The reverse fixture came in October 2017 and it was Aspin's debut in the Vale dugout, but two goals in 15 second-half minutes from Sam Jones and Siriki Dembele cancelled out Tom Pope's opener, meaning it was the Mariners who picked up three points.
