Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby Town will be looking to make amends for back-to-back defeats to the likes of Exeter City and Crawley Town when they welcome Forest Green Rovers at their Blundell Park. The Mariners aim to escape the danger zone in the League Two standings, and they should take advantage of the fact that the Green Army suffered a dip in form.
Forest Green Rovers experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 home loss to Carlisle United, with the team extending their losing run in the league to three games. Considering that defender Liam Shephard is out of contention with injury, we believe that there is a big value in betting on Grimsby Town, who are eager to move away from the relegation zone. Forest Green defeated Grimsby Town 1-0 in the first half of the season, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
