Craig Disley hit his ninth goal of the season to help Grimsby's play-off hopes with a win over Salisbury.

The midfielder fired the Mariners into the lead with a finish from 12 yards.

The hosts had a number of chances to double their advantage, with Scott Neilson, Connor Jennings, Alex Rodman and Shaun Pearson all going close

They finally killed off the game with seven minutes remaining when Rodman found the bottom corner from 18 yards before Ryan Brett went close for City.

Post-match: Salisbury boss Harris

Salisbury City manager Mikey Harris told BBC Wiltshire:

"I wouldn't say it was a positive performance. We didn't deserve anything out of the game.

"Individuals that have been fantastic for us all season, some of them didn't perform today.

"I'm bitterly disappointed because I felt like we had a real opportunity to come here and get something out of the game.

"Credit to Grimsby, they deserved the victory."
