9 February 2019 : Yeovil 1 Grimsby 3 : Match Statistics
Yeovil Town went down to their fourth consecutive defeat on Saturday afternoon, as mid-table Grimsby Town ran away with a comfortable 3-1 victory. The visitors took command just nine minutes into the match when Wes Thomas headed home, and extended their advantage when Adel Gafaiti turned an Elliot Embleton cross into his own net. Yeovil's miserable afternoon wasn't helped by the second half dismissal of Craig Alcock for two bookings, and Grimsby substitute Kristian Dennis put the game to bed when he lobbed Stuart Nelson in the closing minutes. That made Alex Fisher's headed goal a mere consolation in second half injury time, leaving Yeovil just two points off the relegation zone after Macclesfield gained a late point through former loanee Reece Cole.
