Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Stevenage and Grimsby Town go head to head at Broadhall Way in the League Two on Saturday afternoon in what is expected to be a close match. Stevenage have been struggling to find their best form at the start of the season, with the team recording only one win in the process. The Boro are desperate to put an end to their seven-game winless run in the League Two, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the hosts.
Grimsby aim to bounce back from a 1-0 loss to Forest Green, but, no doubt, they would be happy with one point from Saturday’s clash. As previously mentioned, a close game is on the cards at Broadhall Way, and we are tempted to put our money on draw. It has to be noted that under 2.5 goals have been netted in each of Stevenage’s previous six league fixtures.
