Plymouth vs Grimsby Prediction

Plymouth were defeated 2-1 on the road the last match-day, by Bradford City. The team was in the hunt for a spot in the top-most tier, and the loss has been a setback. Surely this has put extra pressure on the squad to deliver a great performance in this upcoming home game.

Meanwhile, Grimsby lost 0-3 at home the prior game week, against Northampton. It was their fourth match from the past five fixtures, where the team conceded two or more goals. These match-ups have raised a question mark about the quality of their defense this season.

As things stand, Plymouth are deemed to be the favorites. They are placed much higher in the table, and have the home advantage. Importantly, they are unbeaten in their past five home appearances and scored twice or more in 15 of their preceding 21 games here.

On the other hand, Grimsby had lost two of their past three match-ups, had conceded twice or more in five of their last seven games, were winless in 29 of their previous 37 fixtures, and had a total of wins on the road from the preceding 13 attempts.

In addition, Plymouth had won the latest h2h clash (along with a clean sheet), and hold a 100% winning record in FA Cup h2h clashes since 2000. Taking these observations into account, expect a dominating winning performance from Plymouth this match-day.
