Grimsby Town Preview – Will the Mariners pick up first win in six?

Grimsby Town, who are managed by Paul Hurst these days, find themselves at the foot of the Football League after a poor season in League Two so far. The Mariners have picked up a measly six wins from 33 league games, losing 19 times along the way.

Grimsby have been in horrendous form in recent months, losing ten of their previous 15 League Two games. Since a 2-1 home victory over Crawley Town on 23rd February, Town have taken two points from a possible 15. They have picked up just two league victories since November.

Our betting prediction:
Grimsby to win to nil

(odds taken 1656 GMT, Tuesday 16 March)

Grimsby are currently six points away from safety. However, they do have games in hand on some of the teams just above the drop zone. Can they kick-start a revival with three points on Wednesday?

Tranmere Rovers Preview – Can Hill’s boys secure a huge three points on the road?

Experienced Keith Hill has done an excellent job at Tranmere Rovers since taking over at Prenton Park back in November. Super White Army are fifth in League Two, collecting 57 points from 33 games played. They are four points away from the automatic spots and four points above eighth.

Tranmere have won four of their last five in League One and have only lost two league matches since a 1-0 home reverse to Bradford City on Boxing Day. However, Rovers were beaten by EFL League One Sunderland in the EFL Trophy final at Wembley Stadium last weekend.
