Recent respective form guides
Grimsby Town need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Mighty Mariners have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Bury's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Shakers have hit 8 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.
Grimsby Town are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League Two with a return of just 17 points from their 23 games thus far. Bury lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League Two, picking up 35 from their 22 games so far.
