Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Prenton Park pits together Tranmere and Grimsby, the two teams who are almost level on points in the League Two standings. The Super Whites have been having their ups and downs of late, with the team beating Swindon, losing to Crawley, while sharing the spoils with Rochdale. Tranmere missed out on a spot in the playoffs, but they surely want to finish the season in style. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of the visit of Grimsby.
The Mariners, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Barrow. Grimsby, though, have a mixed bag on the travels, which is probably the main reason why we are going to put our money on draw. Forward Danilo Orsi-Dadomo is widely expected to return to the starting XI after scoring the winner off the bench in the midweek triumph.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Turnbull):
Born in Trowbridge, England, on October 30, 1994, Jordan Turnbull is a professional footballer who plays for Northampton Town as a defender. Turnbull is a product of Swindon Town football academy, but in 2007 he was spotted by Southampton scouts.
Despite signing a professional contract with Southampton, he did not see any game action with the Saints at senior level. The English footballer made no fewer than 86 league appearances for Swindon Town during his loan spell with the Robins, and in 2016 he signed a contract with Coventry City.
Jordan Turnbull spent the 2017/2018 on loan Partick Thistle before joining Northampton Town permanently. Speaking of his international career, the Northampton centre-back has two caps with the England U19 team, and one cap with the England U20. Jordan Turnbull, who is used as a left-back as well, wears the number 6 jersey at Northampton Town. His preferred foot is left.
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).

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.
