Brian Laws: Breathing a sigh of relief

Ross Hannah, Scott Kerr and Lenell John-Lewis all tried their luck for the hosts but a replay at Glanford Park awaits, and Iron boss Laws was satisfied.

"We're delighted to be in that hat and I'm sure Grimsby will be just as much as we are. We could have lost it and we could have won it," said Laws.

"It ended up being exactly like we thought it would pan out. It was very hectic and devoid of quality.

"There wasn't a lot of time on the ball and every ball was contested.

"We might have been favourites but there's not much between the two teams. There was a lot at stake for both clubs, but we've both got another bite of the cherry."

ark clattenburg is one of those referees that tends to get stick from both sides cos he likes to let the game flow and is quite lenient, and people only remember the fouls against their own team that go unpunished whilst not noticing the ones they've gotten away with. To pick up 4 yellow cards with clattenburg in charge speaks volumes about your approach to the game mr pellegrini.

astly under-rated goal keeper. Barcelona could have gone out and bought a keeper at any point they liked, but they stuck with him for a reason.
