Post-match: Salisbury boss Harris

Salisbury City manager Mikey Harris told BBC Wiltshire:

"I wouldn't say it was a positive performance. We didn't deserve anything out of the game.

"Individuals that have been fantastic for us all season, some of them didn't perform today.

"I'm bitterly disappointed because I felt like we had a real opportunity to come here and get something out of the game.

"Credit to Grimsby, they deserved the victory."
