Grimsby Town boss Mike Newell was pleased with his side's display in the 1-1 draw at Shrewsbury Town, despite the Mariners being dragged closer to the relegation trapdoor.
Chester City's 2-1 win at Notts County took the gloss off the Mariners' result, but Newell was still proud of his squad.
He told the Evening Telegraph: "I really can't fault them.
"For the last three or four games they have shown a bit of steel and have shown a bit of quality in the last couple of games as well.
"I am really pleased. The other results didn't go our way, but you can only do what you can do and, on another day we might have got three points."
