Grimsby came from behind to beat 10-man Forest Green and pile more pressure on boss Dave Hockaday.

Rovers, who have now lost seven of their last eight league matches, went in front when Yan Klukowski followed up Danny Wright's parried effort.

After Rovers' Eddie Oshodi saw red for a serious foul on Craig Disley, Ross Hannah levelled from close range.

Hannah's penalty put Grimsby ahead after Jamie Turley fouled Scott Neilson and Alex Rodman headed in the third.

VIEW FROM THE DRESSING ROOM

Grimsby manager Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside:

Post-match: Grimsby boss Hurst

"I thought we started well, and then we found ourselves a goal behind.

"Our keeper has made two outstanding saves, and he's looking for some help, and somehow Azwad messes his clearance up and lets the lad score.

"In the end he put a couple of great balls in for us, got forward well and defended well, so credit to him."

Forest Green Rovers manager Dave Hockaday told BBC Radio Gloucestershire:

Post-match: Forest Green's Hockaday

"Grimsby just had nothing, they did not know what to do and I'm so proud of the players. Those back home should be so proud of those people that wore shirts today because they were a credit to Forest Green Rovers.

"It's us against the world at the moment and that's how it feels. I'm proud of my boys, they've put in a shift, we asked them to put in even more effort and they have.

"They are working hard and with that effort, we will definitely turn things around and that is no doubt in my mind.

"I'm really disappointed with the yellow cards because that's the referee chasing a bad decision with deflection."
