GRIMSBY TOWN predicted their own win against Southampton in the FA Cup last night with a secret message to fans.
The Mariners continued their impressive run in the cup knocking out the Premier League side at St Mary’s Stadium.
Gavan Holohan’s brace of penalties was enough to give the League Two side victory, despite Duje Caleta-Car‘s 65th-minute goal.
However, during the match, the club’s Twitter account posted a secret code while giving fans updates.
The first letters from the first 14 updates from the game spelled out a message saying: “No doubt about it”.
The club revealed the message after the full-time whistle on social media in an edited video and fans loved it.
One said: “Oh well played!”
A second tweeted: “Genius ❤️.”
While a third wrote: “That is incredible.”
A fourth said: “A message secret enough that you could hide it if you lost, but share this if you won – well played!”

A fifth added: “Grimsby’s Twitter admin deserves overtime pay for this.”
However, some did suggest that the message was just a coincidence, but the club’s Twitter admin did confirm that the move was deliberate.
The League Two face another Premier League side in the quarter-finals as they were drawn against Brighton.
