Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Grismby Town and Stockport County square off against each other at Blundell Park in what is expected to be one of the most exciting games of Saturday’s program. The Mariners aim to put an end to their four-game winless run and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. Danny Amos has joined York City on loan, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Hatters, on the other hand, shared the spoils with Harrogate at the weekend following back-to-back wins over Walsall (3-1) and Doncaster (5-1). Given Stockport County’s attacking potential, we are tempted to place our bets on both teams to score. Midfielder Macauley Southam suffered an injury in a 1-1 draw with Harrogate, with Ibou Touray likely to replace him in the starting eleven. Earlier in the process Stockport County defeated Grimsby Town 3-2 at Edgeley Park.
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.
