Grantham Town deserved more than a point out of their game against Blyth Spartans at The Meres on Saturday – and joint manager Jimmy Albans says he it is just not good enough.

The Gingerbreads were the better side in the first half and led by a single goal going into half time. A scintillating first 45 minutes saw Town generally play a neat passing game which was a joy to watch. Spartans levelled after the break but Grantham regained the lead with 10 minutes remaining. Blyth denied Grantham the win when they equalised a second time with five minutes left on the clock.

Albans said it was frustrating and “not good enough”:

He said: “When you take the lead with 10 minutes to go, you should be able to close the game out.”

Town visit Marine tomorrow without suspended Jamie McGhee. Conor Higginson, Paul Grimes and Damien Magee have injury niggles.
