Run comes to an end at home
all in all it was a fairly quiet first half.
That changed just before the interval when Grimsby took the lead on 42 minutes.
It was a good solo goal from Jones, racing forward and chipping the ball over Aaron Chapman, before then running past him and tapping the ball over the line from close range.
Grimsby thought they would be ahead at the break, but Accrington had other ideas as they levelled just two minutes later on the stroke of half-time.
Jordan Clark’s pass found Jackson, who fires home to score his fifth goal of the campaign.
Stanley were forced into a change at half-time, with Leeds loanee Mallik Wilks coming on in place of the injured Billy Kee.
He nearly had an immediate impact, forcing a good save out of James McKeown after a powerful shot.
Grimsby capitalised on the missed chance though as they went down the other end and scored themselves when Woolford netted from a tight angle.
Stanley did all they could to try and find an equaliser during the closing stages but it wasn’t to be, with Grimsby holding on to earn the 2-1 win.
