Hurst on Barnet v Grimsby Town

"It's a nice win but I've said before if we lost here we're still alright, but it's always nice to get a victory.

"Overall I think today we deserved the victory. Second-half was very different to the first, but overall I thought the lads were excellent.

"I said to the players that I didn't want to be stood talking about another good performance but not taking the victory.

"Late into the game we were obviously at that point, and a point again wouldn't have been a disaster, but I felt that our performance overall deserved to take all three points. "
