Hurst on Grimsby v Alfreton

"There has to be a bit of reality in it all - it's two games.

"It's been two excellent performances and I couldn't really ask for more. We got the clean sheet as well today which I was pleased about, but I'm delighted with the players' attitude in terms of keeping going.

"It could have been quite easy to take the foot off the gas when the game was won, getting the man sent off. It could have been almost too easy but they kept going.

"They could have had a few more again but pleased for their efforts and a bit of a turnaround from the last home game when I was told it's a shambles. "
