Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over Forest Green, Accrington Stanley will look to give fans yet another reason to celebrate when they face Grimsby Town on Matchday 31. The Accy Stanley are eager to stay in the playoffs race and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-oriented approach in Saturday’s football match. The good news for the home side is that Joseph Gubbins has overcome his injury.
The Mariners, on the other hand, are on a three-game winless run in the English fourth tier. Grimsby are seven points clear of the relegation zone, with the team obviously struggling at the back in recent weeks. As David Artell’s troops conceded 13 goals in total in the previous three league matches, we predict that the hosts are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s showdown. To make things even more complicated for the away side, defender Douglas Tharme limped off with injury in the last league match.
