Gareth Ainsworth

"Sometimes you play well and you don't get what you deserve and sometimes you are not great but you get a win. I think today was a case of the latter. Having said that, we looked like the team that was going to score in the second half, although they pumped a few free-kicks in our box towards the end.

"Jamal Blackman kept us in it in the first half with some top saves. We were slow to turn up and we were doing the wrong things.

"I think Luke O'Nien is the most competitive player in the division and he made a difference when he came on.

"What a goal to win any game. And for me, the own goal was that little bit of luck we needed.

"Paris (Cowan-Hall) hadn't seen that he was down. He took a couple of touches, turned and whacked it into the top corner, but he didn't know the player was down.

"He did what he thought was right, and the referee is the one in charge. He is the one who can stop it if he thought it was that bad."

Marcus Bignott (Grimsby Manager)

"Gavin (Gunning) was knocked out cold and he was still coming around after the game"

"We will see how he is. With head injuries it's going to take time and proper assessment. Fingers crossed he will be okay.

"The referee apologised straight away, which was big of him. I can't fault the players for stopping, because he was out cold. For me it's got to be stopped straight away. It's a hard job being a referee. I went to shake his hand and I thanked him for recognising that he had made a mistake. Until the referee blows his whistle, the players have a duty to carry on.

"But I have no blame for my players. They have a duty of care, not only to a team-mate but a human being."
