Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following back-to-back defeats to Harrogate and Leyton Orient, Grimsby Town will be aiming to give fans some cheer when they take on Forst Green in the League Two round 34. The Mariners are stuck at the bottom of the table, and, no doubt, their League Two status is in great danger. Considering that Grimsby have already suffered eight defeats at home ground this season, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the underdogs.
The Green Army, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Stevenage, and it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to get back on course. Forest Green are eyeing automatic promotion to the League One, and they should take advantage of Grimsby Town’s poor home record. Both Young and Adams should be recalled to the starting XI as duo Whitehouse – Richardson failed to impress in the midweek defeat.
