The Silkmen’s season in front of goal ended as it had begun, by drawing a blank. But the positives are clear. On the opening day, the defence conceded four.

And the patched-up side on Saturday never quite loked like capitulating as the season came to an end.

The blues best chance fell to Gareth Evans whose had work won him the ball on the edge of the area, but he saw his low places shot saved.

John Rooney and Izak Reid both had shots from outside the area going over the bar whilst the home side didn’t really test Jon Brain.

The second half saw the home side missing a string of chances with Conlon guilty on more than one occasion of blazing the ball wide of the post.

In a meaningles game it was the perfect time to give young Vinny Mukendi his first chance of League football and the youngster could have scored after keeping posession on the edge of the box but finding his way blocked as he looked to pull the trigger.

Colin Daniels could also have scored from out wide when he rounded the ‘keeper, but couldn’t get the ball into a position to shoot into the unguarded net.

The main controversy was Forbes who came off the bench in the second half and promptly went in high and late on Jon Brain where a probable red-card ofence didn’t even warrant a booking. He was again lucky to remain on the pitch minutes later with an identical foul on Matty Flynn, for which he was given a yellow card.

the game was ended early by the referee who played one minute of the promised three as Grimsby’s supporters crowded onto the pitch ready to celebrate their final and mathmatical survival in the Football League.
