Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby Town continue to struggle in the League Two. The Mariners failed to find the net in the last six league fixtures, meaning that they are desperate to give fans something to cheer about. Grimsby Town recorded their last league win on September 28, 2019 against Exeter City, but given Scunthorpe’s current form, we do not believe that they are going to put an end to the negative trend.
The Iron attackers have found their goal-scoring touch of late, with the team netting exactly two goals in each of their previous four league fixtures. Scunthorpe United did well to beat the likes of Leyton Orient (2-0) and Forest Green (2-0) in the previous two away games in the English fourth tier, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the trip to Cleethorpes. Anyhow, Scunthorpe United are more of a team than Grimsby Town.
Highlighted Team (Scunthorpe):
Founded back in 1899, Scunthorpe United are a professional football club that compete in League Two. The Iron wear sky blue and claret jerseys and claret shorts when playing on home soil, while green is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Scunthorpe United welcome their rivals at the Sands Venue Stadium, which can hold up to 9,088 people. The Iron recorded their biggest triumph (8-1) against Luton Town on April 24, 1965, with the team repeating the success 30 years later when they hammered Torquey United 8-1 in the New Division 3. As for the club’s biggest loss, the Iron were crushed by Carlisle United 8-0 on November 25, 1952.
Grimsby Town are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, but they maintain rivalries with local clubs Hull City, Doncaster Rovers, and Lincoln City as well. Jack Brownsword (1947-65) holds the record for most appearances in Scunthorpe United shirt (783).
