Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Blundell Park will host Tuesday’s League Two clash between Grimsby Town and Salford City, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Grimsby have yet to record a win in the new campaign and their defensive performance in a 3-2 loss to newcomers Notts County is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the midweek game. To make things even worse for the home side, defender Anthony Driscoll-Glennon limped off with injury at the weekend.
DR Congo international Michee Efete is likely to replace him in the starting XI. On the other hand, the Lions have a chance to climb to top position in the standings. Considering that key attacker Conor McAleny has already found his goal-scoring touch, we predict that the visitors are going to pick up all three points from the match. In their last encounter at the venue Salford crushed Grimsby 4-1.
Highlighted Team (Grimsby):
Founded back in 1878 as Grimsby Pelham, Grimsby Town are a professional football club that compete in League Two, the English fourth tier. Grimsby Town welcome their opponents at Blundell Park, the stadium which has the capacity of 9,027 people (all seated).
The Pilgrims are well known for their black jerseys with white stripes, whilst blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Grimsby Town made it to the FA Trophy final on two occasions (2012/13, 2015/16), but they have yet to win the title in the competition. The likes of Hull City and Scunthorpe United are regarded as the club’s main rivals.
The Pilgrims registered their biggest win on September 4, 1925, as they crushed Tranmere Rovers 8-0. Speaking of their heaviest loss, Grimsby Town were beaten by Arsenal 9-1 on January 28, 1931. Pat Glover is sitting in top position in the club’s all-time goal-scoring chart with 180 league goals on his account.
