Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host Saturday’s football game between Grimsby Town and Salford City. Grimsby aim to make amends for a 1-0 defeat to Walsall, where they turn their dominance into goals. The Mariners are determined to register their first home win of the season, and they should take advantage of Salford’s shaky defence.
The Lions have been struggling at the back at the start of the season, but given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Salford veteran Ian Henderson opened his goal-scoring account in the 2-2 draw with Exeter, and he is likely to prove a handful for the opposition defenders. Matthew Green is widely expected to lead the line for the hosts on Matchday 2. Anyhow, we believe that League Two lovers will see a real football festival at Blundell Park.
Highlighted Player (Sebastian Ring):
Sebastian Ring is a professional footballer who was born in Orebro, Sweden, on April 18, 1995. The talented left-back played for the likes of Adolfsbergs IK and Orebro SK during his youth career, and he continued playing for Orebro SK at senior level.
After spending the 2013/2014 season on loan at BK Forward, Sebastian Ring joined Grimsby Town on a permanent basis in 2019. The Swedish footballer, who wears the number 3 jersey at Grimsby, made his debut with the Mariners in the League two on January 22, 2019, in a 3-0 loss to Forest Green Rovers. Despite being a central midfielder originally, his primary position at Grimsby Town is left-back.
The Swedish player, whose preferred foot is left, is used as a centre-back as well. His contract with the Mariners expires on June 30, 2020. It has to be noted that his older brother Jonathan Ring is a football player, as well.
Highlighted Team (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
