Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 2-2 draw with Forest Green, Grimsby Town will look to move away from the danger zone when they take on Sutton on Saturday afternoon. Donovan Wilson is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring a brace as a substitute in the last league match, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Yellows, on the other hand, are stuck at the bottom of the table with 12 points on their account. Sutton have a chance to escape the relegation zone, but given their dreadful away record of 0-1-7, we predict that the hosts are going to pick up all three points from the match. In their last encounter in the English fourth tier Grimsby defeated Sutton thanks to Michee Efete’s goal and we predict that history is going to repeat itself. Sutton midfielder Dominic Gape is a major doubt after limping off with injury in the EFL Trophy loss to Charlton on Tuesday evening.
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.
