Our prediction for this League 2 match:
The People’s Pension Stadium will host Tuesday’s football game between Crawley Town and Grimsby Town. The Red Devils aim to bounce back from a heavy 3-0 loss to Carlisle, but they will have to do it without suspended defender David Sesay. Crawley Town suffered a dip in form, but the game against Grimsby seems to be an ideal opportunity for the hosts to return to winning ways.
The Mariners, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 5-0 loss to Tranmere, with the team dropping to 20th position in the standings. Grimsby boss Ian Holloway is likely to make changes to the team than played at the weekend, with all Preston, Green, Hewitt, Wright, and Scanell pushing for a start. Anyhow, given Grimsby’s shaky defence, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team.
