Jon-Paul Pittman has scored five goals for Grimsby this season

Jon-Paul Pittman's late strike helped promotion-chasing Grimsby Town come from behind to beat Bromley.

Nathan Arnold missed two early chances to give the Mariners the lead, before Sean Francis headed managerless Bromley in front from Paul Rodgers' cross.

On-loan striker Jon Nolan equalised for the visitors in his first start for the club, powering in from long distance.

Alex Wall fired narrowly wide for the visitors, before Pittman turned in Arnold's cross to secure the win.

Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside:

"We fell behind in terms of games and obviously points, but I am delighted because I think that's the type of victory that the top two have managed to get.

"Without it being pretty, we managed to get the job done and defended our box well after the initial goal which set us back.

"It's very rare that you get the performances you want on a regular basis and at this time of year, because of the pitches and conditions, you have to dig deep."
