Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Blundell Park pits together Grimsby Town and Accrington Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table despite the fact that only three points separate them. The Mariners head into the match following a 2-2 draw with Tranmere Rovers and they are surely capable of matching the Accy Stanley on home soil. Donovan Wilson limped off with injury in the last league match, with fellow forward Rekeil Pyke likely to step up.
The visitors, on the other hand, proved their worth in a 2-1 win over Forest Green, but given their difficulties on the road, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be talented forward Josh Andrews, who scored a brace in the last league fixture.
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.
