Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Colchester will be aiming to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Harrogate when they take on Grimsby Town in the League Two round 33. The U’s are eager to get back on course in the English fourth tier and they are likely to go all guns blazing at the Mariners. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the midweek clash.
The Black and Whites, on the other hand, failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Stockport County. Grimsby Town extended their winless run to five games at the weekend and given their shaky defence, we believe that bettors from all around the world can find value in betting on the home side. As for the away team, all Andrews, Vernam, and Green are pushing for a start. David Artell is likely to stick to the 4-2-3-1 formation.
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.
