Grimsby 2-2 Burnley: FT Report

Darren Mansaram's outstanding 87th-minute strike earned battling Grimsby a deserved FA Cup third-round replay after they drew 2-2 with visitors Burnley.

The two Division One sides could not quite recreate the scenes last time they met when the final scoreline read 6-5, but still contributed to a highly-entertaining cup tie at Blundell Park.

Burnley dominated the first half and thoroughly deserved their 2-0 advantage at the interval thanks to goals from Alan Moore and Paul Weller.

But Paul Groves' men responded with admirable spirit and after Terry Cooke converted a 57th-minute penalty, they deservedly restored parity when Mansaram bagged his third goal of the season from 25 yards.

After a shaky start, the visitors composed themselves and, after a spell of intense pressure, scored just before the quarter-hour mark.

George Santos hauled down Alan Moore on the edge of the penalty area, and from Dimitrios Papadopoulos' resulting free-kick, goalkeeper Danny Coyne could only parry the ball to Moore who coolly swept home his first goal of the season.

The Mariners were shell-shocked, and four minutes later Moore turned provider as the Clarets doubled their advantage.

The Burnley striker floated over a wonderful cross from the right channel to Weller who made no mistake with a crisp left-footed strike into the bottom corner of the goal from close range.

But the Clarets suffered a major blow when goalscorer Weller hobbled off to be replaced by Paul Cook.

However, the substitution failed to put Burnley off their stride as Cook's 44th-minute free-kick nearly crept in as Stan Ternent's men finished the half in pole position.

Burnley showed no sign of lowering the tempo after the interval, and Groves' woes were compounded when Santos had to leave the field of play after sustaining an injury to be replaced by Steve Chettle.

But four minutes later the home side dragged themselves right back into the game courtesy of Cooke's penalty.

It was Cooke's initial cross to Stuart Campbell which provoked Ian Cox into a rash challenge in the Burnley penalty area and the referee had no hesitation in pointing to the spot.

Cooke stepped up and finished with aplomb into the bottom right-hand corner of the goal.

The Clarets' susceptibility to hold on to a lead away from home was clearly weighing on the visitors' minds as Burnley were rattled.

Cooke nearly equalised after 63 minutes but his right-footed toe-poke from six yards brought the best out of Marlon Beresford who made a fine save.

And 10 minutes later, the former Manchester United midfielder's vicious strike forced the Burnley goalkeeper into another good stop.

Despite Grimsby's pressure, Burnley still continued to create chances and midfielder Tony Grant went close from 18 yards, but Coyne was equal to it.

With time running out, Grimsby looked to be heading for an early exit, but three minutes from time Mansaram silenced the away fans with a brilliant solo goal.

The 18-year-old striker waltzed past three static Grimsby defenders before unleashing a wonderful 25-yard drive past the helpless Beresford to rescue his side a replay at Turf Moor.
