History of the Grimsby Town v Barnet fixture

Grimsby Town prepare to entertain Barnet at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. All the previous meetings between the two have been won by the Mighty Mariners.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Blundell Park was less than a year ago, in March 2008, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4-1 thriller, in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Mighty Mariners have scored 4, a worringly large 9 have been leaked at the other end.

The away form of Barnet is pretty dire, losing every single one of the last six matches played! While the Bees have hit 4 goals, 19 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Grimsby Town are currently lying in 20th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 3 from their 7 matches played. Barnet are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 1 points from 7 matches.
