The Irish forward scored his third goal in three games since arriving from Bradford as the Mariners earned a 1-1 draw with Shrewsbury to keep themselves a point clear of the relegation zone.
And Conlon told the Grimsby Telegraph: "They [Shrewsbury] are chasing the play-offs and you could see they are a decent side.
"They have won most of their games at home and we would maybe have taken a point before the game.
"The morale will still be up in the dressing room. It is about what we do rather than anyone else.
"We will go out again in our next game chasing the three points."
