Grimsby vs Bradford: Prediction

Ian Holloway’s men recorded a 1-0 win at home the last match-day, against Scunthrope. In the meantime, the Bantams registered a 1-0 win as well, at home, against Cambridge United.

The Mariners have kept a total of one clean sheet from the previous eleven overall games, and they have conceded two or more goals in eight of the preceding eleven fixtures. Note that they have also conceded three or more goals in six of the former eleven match-ups.

And at home, they have had a total of two clean sheets from the last seventeen appearances, and have conceded two or more goals in nine of the past thirteen home games.

On the other hand, their counterparts have merely four clean sheets from their preceding 35 fixtures, and on the road, their solitary clean sheet from the former 20 games had come against a team from the lower division.

Moving on, h2h meetings between these two have almost always had goals in high frequency.

This Tuesday, chances are high for another such occurrence, considering these stats.
