Garner had no argument with the Saturday’s outcome

“All I can say is that the best side won,” Steve told Armthorpe Welfare’s official website. “We didn’t show any hunger or desire to want to win. Over our last few performances we have worked hard and been unlucky not to get anything, but yesterday, we were nowhere near good enough. We had a change in formation due to a few players not being there yesterday and I just don’t think we adapted well to it. Grimsby were a well organised, strong side and were much better than us on the day and deserved their win.”

“In the first half we had a lot of free kicks from deep and corners, but could not turn them into anything more than that,” Steve admitted. “They had two chances and scored them both, due to poor decisions and bad defending from us. In the second half, we had a good chance at 2-0 which could have turned the game, but unfortunately, we missed it. Then straight after, they scored and I think it killed us off.”

Steve isn’t taking his club’s position lightly. “Every game from now until the end of the season is massive for us,” he acknowledged. “We need every player giving 110% to try and get us out of this rut that we are in – or we are in massive trouble.”
