          Grimsby Town vs Wrexham Prediction & Betting Tips

          Wrexham make the trip to Blundell Park to take on Grimsby Town on Saturday in League Two. Grimsby need a big three points to take them further away from the relegation zone, whereas Wrexham need the win to take them within touching distance of the top of the table.

          Kick-off time: 15:00

          Location: Blundell Park

          Both the top and bottom of the table are extremely tight. Grimsby find themselves too close to the relegation zone for comfort, whereas the top four in League Two are separated by just five points, with any of them able to clinch automatic promotion.

          Grimsby Town currently sit 21st in League Two after 37 games. The Mariners have eight wins, 15 draws and 14 losses, leaving them on 39 points, six points above the relegation zone, but with Colchester having two games in hand.

          The Mariners have struggled in front of goal in this season, scoring just 48 goals in 37 games, an average of 1.30 goals a game. Grimsby have been slightly better at the other end of the pitch, conceding 62 goals and keeping eight clean sheets.

          Wrexham, on the other hand, currently sit third in League Two. In 38 games, Wrexham have 19 wins, ten draws and nine losses which leaves them on 67 points, equal with Stockport and MK Dons and five points from top-of-the-league Mansfield.

          The Red Dragons have been impressive attacking-wise this season, scoring 67 goals in 38 games, giving them an average of 1.76 goals a game. Defensively, Wrexham have been a little behind, conceding 47 goals and keeping 13 clean sheets.

          Grimsby and Wrexham have met 56 times in their histories, with the first meeting coming back in 1922. Nothing can separate the two sides with both Grimsby and Wrexham picking up 22 wins, the other 12 games ending in a draw.

          The last five games in the fixture have seen two wins for Grimsby, two wins for Wrexham and one draw. However, in five of the last six games in this fixture there has only been one team on the scoresheet.

          Recent Form

          In their last five games in all competitions, Grimsby have two wins and three draws.

          Grimsby hosted Forest Green Rovers in a big game at the bottom of the table. Harvey Rodgers scored the only goal of the game in the eighth minute to give Grimsby the 1 - 0 win over a Forest Green side who failed to register a single shot on target in the entire 90 minutes.

          The trip to Wimbledon saw Grimsby struggle in front of goal as The Mariners only registered a single shot on target. Wimbledon did manage 15 shots with six of them on target, but neither team could find the back of the net as the game finished in a 0 - 0 draw.

          Justin Obikwu opened the scoring for Grimsby late in the first half to give them the lead at halftime. However, a penalty from Charlie Lakin in the 88th minute grabbed a 1 - 1 draw for Sutton, who only had one shot on target.

          The visit from fourth-place MK Dons resulted in a shock win for Grimsby. Despite The Mariners only having 21% of the possession, Obikwu scored the only goal of the game in the 1 - 0 win for Grimsby as they restricted MK Dons to just one shot on target.

          The last time out for Grimsby was against Gillingham. Both goals in this game came in a two-minute period. Donovan Wilson opened the scoring for Grimsby in the 13th minute but George Lapslie equalised for The Gills just two minutes later. Both sides couldn’t capitalise on their shots and had to settle for the 1 - 1 draw.

          In their last five games in all competitions, Wrexham have two wins, two draws and one loss.

          Wrexham found themselves behind against relegation candidates Forest Green as Emmanuel Osadebe opened the scoring in the third minute. Wrexham had 75% of the possession and 17 shots but it still took until the 93rd minute for Wrexham to score, a penalty from Paul Mullin rescuing the 1 - 1 draw.

          The Red Dragons were back to winning ways against Accrington Stanley. Mullin picked up a first-half hat-trick and was joined on the scoresheet by Elliot Lee, also in the first half to give Wrexham the 4 - 0 win. Accrington also finished the game with just ten men as Lewis Shipley was sent off in the 91st minute.

          Gerard Garner opened the scoring for Morecambe in the fourth minute, but McClean equalised for Wrexham before halftime. However, following the red card to Morecambe’s Max Melbourne, Mullin converted a penalty and Steven Fletcher grabbed a goal in a 3 - 1 win for Wrexham.

          The visit from Harrogate Town saw Wrexham restrict Harrogate to three shots with zero shots on target. However, The Red Dragons couldn’t convert any of their 16 shots and had to settle for a 0 - 0 draw.

          The most recent outing for Wrexham was against Tranmere. Luke Norris scored the only goal of the game in the eighth minute to give Tranmere the 1 - 0 win.
