Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby Town and Morecambe, who defeated Colchester United and Macclesfield Town respectively on Tuesday, take on each other at Blundell Park on Matchday 34. The Mariners came from behind to beat the U’s on the road, with Charles Vernam scoring his first hat-trick of the season. The 23-year-old has found his goal-scoring touch of late, and we are positive that he is going to prove a handful for the opposition defenders on Saturday afternoon.
Morecambe proved their worth in the 2-0 win over the Silkmen, with Aaron Wildig finally opening his goal-scoring account. The visitors must be high on confidence ahead of the trip to North East Lincolnshire, but beating Grimsby Town on the road is easier said than done. Since the two sides seem to be evenly matched at the moment, we believe that punters can find value in betting on draw.
