Duo grant the Mariners a lifeline

admin

The Irish goalkeeper, on loan from Preston, virtually played County on his own in a one-sided first period. Henderson came to the rescue on no less than six occasions in the opening 45 minutes.

And, on the one occasion Henderson was beaten after 28 minutes, Boshell was on hand to make a goalline clearance from a Delroy Facey header.

County paid dearly for their poor finishing after 52 minutes, when defender Atkinson soared to head in a corner from Peter Sweeney.

And the victory that lifted Grimsby out of the bottom two was completed in controversial fashion after 78 minutes.

The assistant’s flag was raised as Boshell went clear to put the ball in the net, but after the officials had consulted, the goal was allowed to stand – and the result ensured that Luton were relegated from the Football League.
