Grimsby Town are ready to welcome Brentford to Blundell Park on Monday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Mighty Mariners are clearly on top, having won 17 and lost only 6 of the 27 games.

The previous match played between the two at Blundell Park was more than three years back, in May 2004, the Mighty Mariners carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a League Division Two match.
