Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Harrogate will be aiming to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Mansfield Town when they host Grimsby Town at EnviroVent Stadium. Harrogate have been producing fine displays on home soil of late, with the team eyeing their third consecutive win at home ground, and they should take advantage of Grimsby’s poor away record. All Ryan Fallowfield, Dan Jones, and Joe Cracknell are likely to miss the game through injuries.
The Mariners are on a six-game losing run on the road in the League Two, with the team failing to find the net in the previous three away games in the English fourth tier. Since Joe Bunney misses the match through suspension, we believe that punters can find value in betting on the home team. In the first half of the season Harrogate recorded a 2-1 win over Grimsby at Blundell Park.
