Jon Worsnop 9: Point-blank stop from Christian Jolley in the final throws of the game was outstanding. Isolated for the first goal and could do nothing about the second having tipped Nathan Arnold's shot onto the post at full stretch. Made a vital stop at the end of the first-half too, deflecting Jon-Paul Pittman's shot behind when a second goal might have put the game to bed.
Ryan Higgins 7: At times guilty of standing off his winger a little bit too much but has the pace to get himself out of trouble and another solid performace. Created the first goal for Heneghan and has a lot of potential, although will be grateful to Worsnop for saving him when his swiped allowed Jolley in.
Ben Heneghan 8: A tougher time than he's been used to with Pittman and the impressive Ollie Palmer making up an effective attacking partnership. But improved as the game wore on, scored an important goal and stood up to be counted when it mattered.
Michael Kay 7: Exposed a couple of times by the rapid Pittman, who's one of the quickest in the league, but recovered from that and produced some excellent last ditch defending in the see-saw finale.
Ibou Touray 7: His lack of game time was all too obvious in a poor first-half, where Jack Mackreth caused him a lot of trouble. However, he improved significantly in the second period and was one of the better players on the pitch toward the end.
Brad Abbott 7: Couldn't get to grips with the two Craigs - Disley and Clay - for a large part of the game but kept on going and grew as an influence in the later stages before making way for another Craig in the shape of team-mate Hobson.
Kingsley James 7: Signs he's rediscovering his best form, snapping into tackles and eager to get on the ball. As with Abbott, it was hard work for much of the game but came into his own at the back end.
Matty Hughes 8: An opponents nightmare because he never stops. Always looking to make something happen and willing to take people on. Didn't get a lot of the ball in dangerous areas but teased Gregor Robertson into a clumsy foul for the penalty and that elusive goal can't be too far away.
George Thomson 5: Even before he was forced off the pitch on 35 minutes, the attacking midfielder found things difficult. With his team unable to keep hold of the ball, his opportunities were limited.
Kane Richards 6: It's taken longer than hoped for him to adjust to the higher level but he covered plenty of ground, worked hard and tried to get into the contest as best he could. Remains a work in progress but a full pre-season and a few more games will do him the world of good.
Oliver McBurnie 7: Not the easiest afternoon against two of the best centre halves in the league. However, never shirked the challenge and kept plugging away, getting more joy towards the end of the game.
Craig Mahon 8: Didn't really get into the game until midway through the second-half but from then on the Irish winger was a major influence on proceedings. Busy and inventive, his quick feet and smart movement caused Grimsby lots of problems.
John Rooney 7: An impressive cameo, providing an excellent link between the midfield and attack, and keeping a cool head to convert the penalty that drew his team level. A welcome reminder of his undoubted talent and will be interesting to see if he gets further opportunities in his natural position as a number 10.
Craig Hobson 6: A late replacement for Abbott as the Blues searched for a winner and he almost found it, bringing a good save out of James McKeown with a well-hit drive.
