Stockport continue to set League Two pace after comfortable win at Grimsby

SoccerNews in General Soccer News 10 Feb 2024


Stockport sent out another message to their Sky Bet League Two promotion rivals with a routine 3-1 victory over Grimsby.

First-half goals from Antoni Sarcevic, Isaac Olaofe and Lewis Cass – on his Stockport debut – did the damage to keep the leaders four points clear at the top.

Grimsby winger Abo Eisa replied with a consolation.

Sarcevic opened the scoring for Stockport in the eighth minute when he latched on to a loose pass from Harvey Cartwright before keeping his cool and slotting past the onrushing Grimsby goalkeeper.

It was 2-0 six minutes later when Olaofe finished a sweeping breakaway move which also involved Nick Powell and Connor Lemonheigh-Evans.

Cass nodded a third into the Grimsby net in the 28th minute when the on-loan defender was picked out by a Sarcevic cross.

Eisa offered Grimsby hope shortly after the restart when he netted from point-blank range from Charles Vernam’s initial strike but, while they pushed and probed for the remainder, struggling Grimsby were unable to make any further inroads.
