Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a goalless draw with Mansfield Town, Bradford City will look to return to winning ways in the League Two when they face Grimsby Town in Saturday’s matinee. The Bantams are undefeated in the previous three games in all competitions, but they need to start winning on a regular basis if they are to make it to the playoffs. There are no fresh injury concerns in the home team ahead of the visit of Grimsby.
The Mariners, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-0 win over Gillingham, with the team climbing to 12th place in the standings. Grimsby, though, are not regarded as good travellers, which is probably the main reason why we are going to bet on draw. Paul Hurst is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Gills on Matchday 6. You should know that under 2.5 goals have been netted in five of the previous seven meetings between the two sides.
Highlighted Team (Grimsby):
Founded back in 1878 as Grimsby Pelham, Grimsby Town are a professional football club that compete in League Two, the English fourth tier. Grimsby Town welcome their opponents at Blundell Park, the stadium which has the capacity of 9,027 people (all seated).
The Pilgrims are well known for their black jerseys with white stripes, whilst blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Grimsby Town made it to the FA Trophy final on two occasions (2012/13, 2015/16), but they have yet to win the title in the competition. The likes of Hull City and Scunthorpe United are regarded as the club’s main rivals.
The Pilgrims registered their biggest win on September 4, 1925, as they crushed Tranmere Rovers 8-0. Speaking of their heaviest loss, Grimsby Town were beaten by Arsenal 9-1 on January 28, 1931. Pat Glover is sitting in top position in the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 180 league goals on his account.
