Hill salutes striker after another win
Three goals from Dagnall and another from Joe Thompson, who broke the deadlock, moved Dale a step closer to promotion. And Hill said: "Chris deserved his hat-trick and it was a special performance from him. "It was a superb performance in general. The conditions didn't help but we came out of the traps and so did Grimsby to be fair, but once we wrestled the tempo away from the opposition I thought we were well worth our lead." Ashley Chambers pulled a goal back for the Mariners before half-time to make it 3-1, but it proved mere consolation as Dale dented Grimsby's survival bid.
