Grimsby Town pack their bags to visit Wrexham at Racecourse Ground on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Mighty Mariners will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The previous match played between the two at Racecourse Ground was within the last three years, in February 2008, when they played out a goalless draw in a League Two match.
