Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Whaddon Road will host Tuesday’s postponed fixture between Cheltenham Town and Grimsby Town. The Robins are eyeing their fifth consecutive win in all competitions, and they are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in the midweek clash. It has to be noted that Cheltenham Town managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their previous three League Two fixtures. The Mariners, on the other hand, have been struggling in front of goal of late.
Grimsby failed to find the net in the last three league matches, and it should come as no surprise the odds for home win have been dropping. Cheltenham Town are more of a team than Grimsby Town, and we predict that the hosts are going to prove their worth on the field. In their last encounter in the League Two the two sides played out a goalless draw, but home win should be considered this time out.
