Grimsby vs Cheltenham Prediction

Grimsby were on the road the last match-day, and they were being hosted by Northampton. The hosts dominated all through the first half, with two unanswered goals, and later concentrated on the defense to ensure the win.

Meanwhile, Cheltenham was held by Colchester, at the former’s home, in the prior game week. The final scoreline was 1-1, but the moral victory had gone to the hosts, as the equalizer had come just twenty minutes from full time, after trailing for the majority of the fixture.

Considering current form, Grimsby are winless in their last nine matches on the trot and had lost seven of these as well. They had also remained winless in 15 of their prior 17 match-ups too. At home, they are winless in their previous four appearances and had one victory from their prior eight attempts.

On the other hand, their opposite number had gone unbeaten in 13 of their former 15 overall games, and are so in their prior six road trips. Finally, majorly, Grimsby had been on the backfoot against this opponent in h2h encounters, and coupling all these factors together, Cheltenham are the frontrunners to post the three points on the board.
