Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host Tuesday’s football game between Grimsby Town and Exeter City. The Mariners did well to make amends for a heavy 5-0 loss to Tranmere Rovers, with the team beating Crawley Town 2-1 on the road in their last league match. Grimsby aim to keep on climbing the standings, but keep in mind that Exeter are undefeated on the road in the 2020/21 season.
The Grecians, on the other hand, rolled over Colchester United 6-1 in their last league match, with the team eliminating Gillingham in the FA Cup at the weekend. Exeter City are more of a team than Grimsby Town, and we predict that the promotion-chasing side will pick up all three points from the midweek clash. In their last encounter at Blundell Park Exeter City defeated Grimsby Town 1-0 thanks to Nicky Law’s goal.
