Grimsby defeated Salford City 2-0 during the week with a goal in either half from Abo Eisa with the club only conceding one shot on target that day.

As for Mansfield, they drew 2-2 with Crewe Alexandra in their first match of the season where KD Davis carried on his excellent form with a brace inside four minutes at one point during the second half. Calum MacDonald was sent off in the first half, but he can play here.
