Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Swindon Town play host to County Ground at their County Ground in what is expected to be an exciting League Two encounter. The Robins have been involved in some high-scoring games of late and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be experienced forward Charlie Austin, who has found this goal-scoring touch of late.
The Mariners, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in back-to-back defeats to Wrexham (0-3) and Crawley (2-3), which is yet another reason why we are going to bet on Swindon, who have been scoring goals for fun of late. There are no fresh injury worries in the visiting team ahead of Saturday’s showdown. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier Swindon Town rolled over Grimsby Town 5-0.
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.
