          Gillingham vs Grimsby Prediction, Tips & Stats

          This Saturday, Priestfield Stadium becomes the stage for a clash of contrasting priorities as Gillingham host Grimsby Town in a League Two encounter. The Gills, comfortably nestled in 10th, have their sights set on a potential late playoff push, whilst Grimsby Town, find themselves precariously perched in 21st position, embroiled in a desperate fight for survival.

          In what is a very congested League Two table, the hosts are just two points beneath the playoff places. However their form will need to improve if they are to make a late push for promotion.

          Stephen Clemence’s side have only gained one point from their last three league games, a run which has included defeats against Barrow and Wimbledon, side who are also vying for a spot in the playoffs.

          Following a good run of performances, Grimsby have managed to somewhat distance themselves from the ensuing relegation battle in League Two and are six points above the drop zone.

          The Mariners have not been defeated in the league in their last five outings, in which they have gained nine points from. Notably, Grimsby have only conceded two goals in these five games, signalling a large improvement in their defensive line.

          Grimsby managed to defeat promotion chasing MK Dons when the two sides met each other on Tuesday evening. Justin Obikwu settled the game with a first-half winner to put David Artell's men six points above the relegation zone with 10 matches to play.

          The fixture of Gillingham vs Grimsby has a long and storied history, with the two sides having first met in 1921 in a Division Three game. In total, the two sides have faced each other on 39 occasions and Grimsby have a slightly better record having won 17 games compared to 12 which have been won by Gillingham.

          It was Grimsby who recorded a convincing 2-0 victory when these sides met each other earlier on in the season in the reverse fixture. First-half goals from Niall Maher and Gavan Holohan put the hosts in full control, which proved enough to consign Gillingham to their second successive league defeat.

          It is the home side who come into this game as heavy favourites at the bookies ahead of this weekend and they are currently priced @ 17/20, whilst an away win for Grimsby is priced @ 3/1 and a draw is @ 12/5.

          We are backing Grimsby to win and Danny Rose to score as the Mariners come into this weekend on the back of a good run of form. We believe that Rose is a likely scorer because he has shown some good form so far this season and is Grimsby’s top scorer having netted 12 goals this season.

          Gillingham Team News

          Gillingham head coach Clemence is not expected to make wholesale changes to the side that took to the field against Wimbledon last time out. However, there is likely to be a change in the final third of the field, with Ashley Nadesan, who has only scored twice in the league this season, set to be introduced into the XI. Conor Materson will miss this game as he serves a suspension following his red card last time out.

          Grimsby Team News

          David Artell does not have any new injury concerns to deal with coming into this weekend and he is not likely to make any changes to the side that defeated MK Dons 1-0 last on Tuesday evening.
