Grimsby 2-1 Cambridge Utd- Match Report

Russell Slade starts second spell at Grimsby with win

Goals from Calum Dyson and Chris Clements gave returning Grimsby manager Russell Slade a 2-1 win in his first game in charge against Cambridge.

On-loan Everton striker Dyson gave the hosts the lead from the penalty spot before Clements wrapped up the points, with Brad Halliday grabbing a late consolation for Shaun Derry's side.

After an even first half with few chances, Grimsby began the second half brightly as Jamey Osborne saw a curling effort from the edge of the box deflected over for a corner.

And it was the midfielder who won a penalty moments later as he was brought down by Conor Newton, giving Dyson the chance to slam the ball past goalkeeper Will Norris.

Medy Elito was presented with a chance to bring Cambridge level seconds after coming on as a substitute, but his first-time shot was well-saved by James McKeown.

Clements made it 2-0 late on as he slotted home from Osborne's cutback, but Halliday set up a grandstand finish as he headed in with just minutes remaining.

Grimsby managed to hang onto their lead, though, as Slade made the perfect start to his second stint at Blundell Park.
