‘Fed up of his tinkering’, ‘Shameful’ – Many Grimsby fans react as they’re soundly beaten at home

Grimsby Town’s early-season promise appears to have faded as they were well beaten by Leyton Orient at Blundell Park this afternoon.

The result took Orient above the Mariners and carried on a miserable run for Michael Jolley’s side. They’ve won just two of their last 12 matches, with four defeats on the bounce after their promising 3-1 victory at Exeter City.

Four-goal Matt Green and midfielder Elliott Whitehouse both dropped to the bench as the manager rung the changes, but his side trailed from 11 minutes onwards after Dan Happe’s opener. Josh Coulson added a second before half time to give Carl Fletcher a huge boost in his first game in charge.

Grimsby enjoyed more possession but struggled to make it count and the visitors added some real gloss to the scoreline in the last ten minutes, James Alabi putting away a third before Josh wright bagged from the penalty spot.

It was a damning blow for the Lincolnshire side, who have slipped to 14th in the table, three points outside the top seven, but seven behind Forest Green in sixth.

These supporters are not happy, wondering if perhaps it’s time for the manager to be replaced.
