SHIREBOOK PICK UP ALL 3 POINTS AGAINST HIGH FLYING GRIMSBY
Goals from Sam Dockwray and Kieran Watson gave Shirebrook a 2-1 win against high flying Grimsby Borough
It was the visitors who controlled the start of the game having lots of the ball but the Shirebrook defense managed to stay firm but it was Shirebrook who broke the deadlock in the 15th minute when Kieran Watsons had a shot and the Grimsby goalkeeper parried it into the path of Sam Dockwray who smashed the ball into the roof of the net however the Shirebrook lead didn't last long Joshua Venney leveled the scores in the 19th minute when he cut in from the left and curled a shot into the top corner the rest of the half was very open with both teams having chances but it was Shirebrook who regained the lead in the 26th minute when Declan Brewin picked the ball up on the left and found Kieran Watson at the back post who made no mistake from a tight angle and Shirebrook managed to hang on to that lead till the break.
The second half started the same was as the first with Grimsby having lots of the ball but Shirebrook goalkeeper Jamie Dean was in fine form keeping everything out but Shirebrook had chances to extend the lead with Sam Dockwray, Kieran Watson and Jermaine Jatau all had chances but failed to take them as the minutes ticked by Grimsby were pushing more and more men forward looking to try and get back in the game but they couldn't find a way through and Shirebrook managed to see out the game and pick up all 3 points.
