Eastleigh 0-1 Grimsby Town

Eastleigh's six-game unbeaten run in the National League came to an end as Padraig Amond's 13th league goal of the season gave Grimsby all three points.

Amond scored from a tight angle on the half-hour mark following fine build up play from Alex Jones and Nathan Arnold.

Eastleigh fared better in the second half as Josh Payne teed up Yemi Odubade but the striker fired his shot wide.

Aristote Nsiala could have doubled Grimsby's lead soon after but he headed Conor Townsend's corner over the bar.

Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside:

Hurst on Eastleigh v Grimsby

"I'm delighted. We came up against the form team realistically and to come here and play how we did I think it was thoroughly a deserved victory.

"We went in at half-time with the lead and if anything it was just a case of a few negatives that we could've been two-nil up.

"Second half, still thought we were the better side and had a claim, in my opinion, for a good penalty turned down."
