Match Report: Notts County to spend Christmas in the gutter as Grimsby Town win by four


Well, Merry Christmas everybody.

Following the drama that was 2017, the great escape, the promotion form of the following season, 2018 has crumbled like... well, our defence.

Faltering form, failure in the playoffs, and this season, spending Christmas in the bottom two with a team that is frankly shambolic.

Grimsby Town are hardly setting the division on fire, yet they ran out 4-0 winners over a Magpies side that, aside from being dreadful, offers no hope of actually putting things right, making the non-league a real possibility.

The Mariners got off the mark after just over the three-minute mark, youngster Harry Clifton heading home on the rebound from Harry Cardwell's initial effort

Notts then did enjoy a period of pressure but spurned their opportunities and before the break they fell further behind through Harry Davis, who rose highest to head home.

Michael Jolley's side never looked back as Davis claimed his second and Grimsby's third, while Wes Thomas fired home on the volley to truly ruin the Black & White Army's Christmas.
