Grimsby Town 4-0 Notts County

Grimsby Town continued their superb run of form at Blundell Park with a thumping victory over League Two strugglers Notts County.

Goals from Harry Clifton and Harry Davis set the Mariners on their way, before a second from Davis and a Wes Thomas strike piled more misery on County.

Grimsby opened the scoring early on when Clifton followed up an initial effort from Harry Cardwell to nod past Ross Fitzsimons.

Jamie Turley headed a golden chance wide at the other end, from a corner, and it proved to be telling as Davis soon made it two.

Upon the restart, two efforts from Nathan Thomas were enough to keep James McKeown on guard in the Grimsby goal.

But for all of their possession in and around the final third, County never really looked likely to claw their way back into the game.

And soon enough, it was 3-0 when Davis rose highest once more to head in Elliot Embleton's corner, before Thomas rounded things off with a superb finish on the volley.
