Grimsby Town 0-0 Boreham Wood

Promotion-chasing Grimsby and strugglers Boreham Wood played out a scoreless draw in the National League.

The visitors dominated the first half and came close to taking the lead early on when Grimsby keeper James McKeown denied Luke Howell from close range.

Padraig Amond nearly put the Mariners ahead shortly after only for James Russell to deny him from 12 yards.

Russell went on to pull off a string of impressive saves in the second half to deny Grimsby taking all three points.

Grimsby remain third in the table while Boreham Wood stay 21st, but are now one point from safety.

Grimsby Town manager Paul Hurst told BBC Radio Humberside:

"Yes it was obviously frustrating.

"Before the game you're hopeful it's going to be an opportunity to get three points at home. It doesn't matter who we play, we always think that.

"Credit to them - I thought they came and worked extremely hard. Conditions were very difficult, I think most people could see that.

"It looked hard work for the lads out there but the important thing from my point of view is we didn't lose the game. We would have liked to have won it but I saw effort out there."
