Macclesfield vs Grimsby Prediction
Macclesfield shared the spoils for the fourth time on the trot, after Walsall managed to hold them to a 1-1 draw. The hosts took the lead eight minutes after the ball started rolling in that latter matchup. However, their counterparts huffed and puffed, and finally bagged an equalizer, ten minutes after the hour mark.
With the hosts’ last tasting success in the league way back in October, the home side are now sitting twenty-second in a cluster of twenty-four.
On the other hand, Grimsby have been alternating between draws and defeats in their last seven clashes in League two. Their previous fixture at home saw them lose 1-0 to Scunthorpe. While on the road, they played out a far from impressive stalemate alongside Carlisle.
It is also worth mentioning that the visitors are winless in their past ten games in all competitions.
As far as away statistics go, the guests have not come out on top since their 3-1 win over Exeter back in September. In contrast, Macclesfield have been faring a lot better in their respective matchups at home. They are unbeaten in their past seven League two fixtures here and have stumbled just once so far as well.
Given the positive form that they are on at home, a win is certainly looming large for Macclesfield in this one.
However, the hosts have settled for just a point in five of their last six games here. Taking into account that Grimsby have also been held to a draw in half of their previous four outings, a double chance is sizing up to be the safest punt.
Furthermore, the visitors have been virtually invisible in the final third on the road. They have not found the back of the net in any of their previous four fixtures in all competitions.
With three of their last four h2h matchups here also featuring fewer than 2.5 goals on the charts, expect a low scoring clash to unfold come Thursday.
