Yeovil Town 3-0 Grimsby Town

Grimsby Town ended the game with nine men as Yeovil Town ran out comfortable winners at home.

Mitch Rose was shown a straight red in the sixth minute before Lewis Wing gave the hosts the lead.

Karleigh Osborne received his second booking on the hour mark and the Glovers made them pay with further goals from Rhys Browne and Jake Gray.

Rose was dismissed after he jumped in two-footed on Jordan Green and the Glovers wasted little time in taking advantage. Just eight minutes later Green picked out Wing inside the six-yard box and the Middlesbrough loanee put it through the legs of goalkeeper Ben Killip for his second goal in as many league games.

Osborne received his first booking after an argument with team-mate Luke Summerfield in the first half and he was given his marching orders in the 60th minute after bringing down Gray.

It still took another 11 minutes until Yeovil scored their second, when a Wing shot pinballed around the box before substitute Browne scuffed it in.

Gray made it 3-0 when he followed up a deflected Tom James effort to score at the far post.
