Braintree Town cruised to a first Blue Square Bet Premier victory by thrashing visitors Grimsby.

The hosts hit two quick-fire goals on the stroke of half-time as Kenny Davis headed in Ben Wright's cross before Sean Marks buried Davis's knockdown.

Andrew Yiadom made it three when he shot low into the corner from distance eight minutes after the break.

Marks headed his second just short of the hour and Brad Quinton poked home the fifth in injury time.
