The Iron will face Lincoln in the semi final of the Lincs Cup after a comfortable victory over Grimsby Town.

In truth, the scoreline flattered the Iron who scored two goals in the final few minutes.

David Mirfin headed the Iron into the lead in the first-half, before Sam Winnall and Deon Burton added gloss to the score-line. 

Andy Welsh thought he had made it two midway through the second half powering a Hawkridge cross goalwards, only for the linesman to have deemed the ball did not cross the line.

Grimsby had a penalty claim turned down by referee Darren Drysdale with five minutes to go when Aswad went down in the area before the Iron struck twice to confirm a semi final date against Lincoln.

Man of the Match Terry Hawkwidge, who dropped in expertly at right back following Andy Dawson picking up a knock to the thigh found substitute Winnall, who powered a firm header into the corner of the net to make it 2-0. Then with just moments left, the Grimsby players turned to the referee appealing for a free kick which never came and were caught motionless as Deon Burton launched an effort from the half way line, that flew over goalkeeper McKeown into an empty net.
