Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby Town will be looking to put an end to their ten-game winless run in the League Two when they host Crawley Town at their Blundell Park. The Mariners have been struggling to find their form in the year finale, but the game against Crawley Town could be the turning point for the relegation threatened-team. The Reds, on the other hand, proved their worth in the Boxing Day win over Northampton Town, with Ollie Palmer scoring his 5th goal of the season.
The 27-year-old is likely to lead the line for the visitors against Grimsby Town, and we predict that he is going to pose a big threat for the opposition defenders. The Reds are tough to beat at home, but given their poor away record in the English fourth tier, we do not believe that they are capable of picking up all three points from the Blundell Park showdown.
