Sponsors' man of the match: dunno
Who cares? They probably wanted to say goodbye to Liam Hearn..
Cod Almighty man of the match: Michael Coulson
Try as most did, the man of the match was clearly Coulson, for that little bit of spurty trickery that opens the bay windows. Oh...
Our MoM awards so far this season
One of our gaffers says
"I thought we passed it really well up until that final third. It was just that bit of creativity or a bit of individual brilliance to create a goalscoring opportunity."
More from BBC Sport
A recurringly silly formation with half a dozen players not fully committed to risk injury. Nothing new to report there, for without regular width Town were reduced to hope and hoofs.
We've ended up exactly where we started, playing the same way, with the same faults and glaring weaknesses. Miller, Disley and Hearn are fine, the rest are ten-a-penny trundlers, squad men of occasional use. Shorty and Shouty talk a good game, but they need to learn from their own repeating errors and have some humility. If something doesn't work, do something else.
Is it fair to extrapolate from this meaningless jocular jaunt? They packed their defence and hit on the break. Like most teams in the division they were coached, with a method and a discipline to carry out team orders. They made the most of what they had without looking anything but perfectly adequate mid-tablers. A variant on Forest Green and Cambridge, with a hint of early season Mansfield thrown in.
The sort of team that you should beat if you are a proper promotion team, but will lose to if you aren't. Town and Southport: two peas in a pod, then.
Grimsby 'til I die... or cry?
Despite the wind, despite the biting cold, several hundred still stayed behind to applaud a season of stasis.
Mr R Wrigglesworth (S Yorks)
He blew his whistle when he should, he didn't get in the way, he wanted it all to end as quickly as possible too without fuss or favour. Let him have it: 7.001.
