A CONTROVERSIAL GOAL AND GOULDING SENDING-OFF LEAD TO FIRST DEFEAT IN THREE | A Lee Bradbury header and a horrendous Colgan mistake saw Feeney make it two-two before the Cherries concede a late winner.
With only one point from the last three away games the Cherries were looking to improve against second from bottom Grimsby. However, the form guide proved to be of little significance as the hosts took the lead in the 27th minute. Jalal could only palm away an angled shot into the path of an unmarked Grimsby player to tap into the empty net. The Cherries were struggling to create chances but with half-time approaching Lee Bradbury headed home a Pitman corner for his first of the season.
HALF TIME 1-1
The second half again saw the Cherries struggle to create and 15 minutes in the hosts took the lead. An in-swinging cross seemed to deflect off an outstretched Grimsby hand giving them the lead. The Cherries regained parity thanks to a howler from ex-Cherry Nick Colgan who somehow let Feeney’s tame shot slip between his legs and roll over the line. Minutes later the ref added to the Cherries woes, giving Jeff Goulding a straight red for an alleged elbow, when it looked like it should have been the opposition player taking a walk. The Cherries nearly went ahead for the first time in the match but Colgan got in the way of a Feeney shot. With the game drawing to a close the Cherries could not hold on as Grimsby loanee Ashley Chambers smashed a shot into the roof of the net.
Managed to get sent off in less than a minute. Oh dear, oh dear
