The Hatters travel to Grimsby on Saturday, a team that they have exactly double the points of. Stockport beat the Mariners 3-1 earlier this season, but they have lost the last two meetings at Blundell Park.
The Mariners have really struggled this season, which is reflected by their position in 20th with just 29 points after 29 games. They do score a decent amount of goals, 1.41 per game, to be exact, but their defence is extremely vulnerable, conceding 1.76 per game.
Grimsby have only won one of their last eight games, with a 6-1 defeat and a 5-5 draw in the middle of those. However, last weekend they took part in a rather dull 0-0 draw against Accrington Stanley.
The Hatters have been almost unstoppable this season, and they’re on course to earn automatic promotion this season. They’re currently leading the way in the league with 17 wins from 29 games. Stockport have only conceded one goal per game this season, the second-best record in the league, while also scoring 2.14, the most in the league.
However, last time out, they were held to a 1-1 home draw against Harrogate Town. The hosts dominated the tie, registering 20 attempts and creating three big chances, but the visitors, with three shots all game, claimed a point.
Stockport County should come away from this tie with three points, which will help them continue their League Two dominance.
For Grimsby, this tie is more of a free hit where any points is a plus.
The final prediction is Grimsby Town 0-3 Stockport County.
