Promotion-chasing Grimsby moved up to third in the Blue Square Bet Premier with a win over struggling Ebbsfleet.

Marcus Marshall gave the hosts the lead in the first minute when he turned in Andy Cook's cross, before Cook doubled the lead from Ross Hannah's delivery.

Liam Enver-Marum reduced the arrears when he ran at the defence before firing home a low drive.

However Craig Disley's wonderful 30-yard strike secured three points, and Grimsby's 12th home win this season.
