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 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Cheltenham T.'s away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Robins have hit 4 goals, 7 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 18 points from their 24 games thus far. Cheltenham T. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 24 points from 24 matches.
