Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host postponed fixture between Grimsby Town and Newport County, the two teams who are stuck in the middle of the League Two table. The Mariners aim to make amends for a 3-1 loss to Swindon Town, and you should bear in mind that they scored 2+ goals in each of their previous three home matches. James Hanson, who has found his goal-scoring touch of late, will be the man to watch in the home team.
Anyhow, the Mariners, who have been scoring goals for fun on home soil of late, are likely to find the net in Tuesday’s football match. The Exiles, on the other hand, aim to build on a 2-1 win over Bradford City. Considering that the win over the Bantams gave Newport County a confidence boost, both teams to score betting option should be considered.
