Grimsby Town were held to a 2-2 draw away at struggling Guiseley in the National League on Tuesday night, but Ryan Jennings, who featured for the full 90 minutes, played his part when he helped on a corner to allow Craig Disley to score for 1-1.

The Mariners' point edges them closer towards the title chasing top two, but will be considered a missed opportunity, with Grimsby 12 points and two games in hand behind Forest Green Rovers and 14 points behind leaders Cheltenham Town.  They sit seven points inside the division's play off places.

It was a narrow Cheshire Senior Cup defeat for Chester and Danny O'Brien on Monday evening as they fell to a 1-0 loss away to Tranmere Rovers.

O'Brien featured for the full 90 minutes, impressing throughout, including seeing a shot cleared off the line close to the hour mark.

BRIGHTON & HOVE ALBION 1 READING 0 - ANDREW TAYLOR

Latics' final match day squad involvement in the midweek action came at the AMEX Stadium, where Andrew Taylor was an unused substitute in Reading's 1-0 defeat to Premier League hopefuls Brighton & Hove Albion.

Defeat for the Royals leaves them 15th in the Sky Bet Championship on 44 points, just eight above the relegation zone.

TORQUAY UNITED 0 HALIFAX 0 - DAN LAVERCOMBE

Tuesday night was another on the sidelines for Dan Lavercombe due to injury, but Torquay United kept their encouraging form going with a 0-0 draw against relegation battling rivals Halifax.

The Gulls are now unbeaten in seven matches, the last three of which have been 0-0 draws over the last seven days, but the steady points haul has seen them rise to 21st place, just one point from the safety mark with a game in hand over 20th place Boreham Wood.

RAMSBOTTOM UNITED 1 NANTWICH TOWN 4 - SAM COSGROVE

It was a comprehensive 4-1 victory for Nantwich Town over Ramsbottom United on Tuesday night in the Evo-Stik Northern Premier Division, but striker Sam Cosgrove didn't feature in the squad.

Instead, Cosgrove played the full 90 minutes for Latics' Development Squad, captaining the side in their 1-0 defeat away to Bradford City at the Coral Windows Stadium, in a match which saw him hit the crossbar with a volley from 25 yards, just moments before the crucial goal.

His loan side's victory over Ramsbottom moved them up into ninth place in the Evo-Stik NPD, 12 points from the play-off places with two games in hand.
