Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grimsby Town and Stevenage take on each other at Blundell Park in the League Two round 27. Grimsby Town failed to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that home win should be considered. All Williams, Rose, and Spokes are pushing for a start as trio Wright – Preston – Hewitt failed to impress in the midweek defeat to Scunthorpe.
The Boro, on the other hand, head into Saturday’s clash following a goalless draw with Colchester United. Stevenage are tough to beat at home, but they have collected no more than six points on the road in the 2020/21 League Two season. The Boro have yet to record a win on the road this term, but it seems as if they will not have a better chance than this to grab one.
Highlighted Player (Sean Scannell):
Sean Scannell is a winger who plays for Huddersfield Town. The Irish footballer is capable of playing up front as well and he began his senior career at Crystal Palace, before penning a three-year contract with Huddersfield Town.
The English player, who was born in Croydon on 17 September 1990, made 25 outings for Huddersfield in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign, scoring one goal for the club. Sean Scannell has 10 caps for Republic of Ireland Under-21 side, but he has yet to make his debut for the senior team. Scannell was named Republic of Ireland Young Player of the Year in 2007, and in 2008 he was Crystal Palace’s Young Player of the Year.
His contract with Huddersfield Town expires on 30 June, 2019 and his highest market value was €1 million back on 8 January, 2009. Sean Scannell started his youth career in Addiscombe Corinthians, but he played for Crystal Palace youth teams as well.
Highlighted Team (Stevenage):
Based in Hertfordshire, England, Stevenage Borough are a professional club that compete in the League Two. The Boro are well known for their red and white home hit, while dark blue is the dominant colour of their away kit. Stevenage play their home games at Broadhall Way, the stadium which can hold up to 6,722 spectators and they were founded in 1976.
The Boro have won FA Trophy on two occasions (2006/07, 2008/09), with the team clinching the Herts Senior Cup title in the 2008/09 season thanks to a 2-1 win over Cheshunt. Luton are considered one of the club’s biggest rivals and there have always been fireworks in matches between the two sides.
In 2015 fighting broke out between rival fans near to the end of the clash at the Lamex. It has to be noted that Stevenage Borough were founded in 1976 after the bankruptcy of Stevenage Athletic.
