THE EAGLE HAS LANDED

Robert Eagle scored his first goals for the Mariners on Thursday night, in a sensational game against Forest Green.

Heres a look at the goals that saw Grimsby nearly lose to a struggling side:

1-0

tyche latched onto a through ball from their number 8, beat Watt and O’Donnell to the ball and chipped home from the edge of the area

2-0

0 yard pass from the number 8, a cross field ball, Norwood caught on edge of the area and half volleyed the ball across the keeper – a well hit shot that the keeper could have done better with.

2-1

elee led to Bore heading back into the box and Eagle heads a looping header from 12 yards over the keeper.

3-1

n 52 minutes number 19 played a one two with Styche before slotting home

3-2

free kick half cleared and Wright hit a rising shot, that surprisingly still went in low from about 12 yards

3-3

ore hit a fantastic cross beating 3 men, got to the goal line, cut it back and Eagle sidefooted home a volley, calm as you like, from 12 yards

Grimsby down the flanks were awesome and when they had the ball they looked good, however when they didn’t, as Neil Woods said, they were shocking. A team 23rd in the table scored 3 times against the Mariners, and once again the lack of luck in front of goal, with Connell mising chances, is costing the club dearly.
