Grimsby Town prepare to entertain Darlington at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Mighty Mariners are clearly on top, winning 56.00% of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Blundell Park was less than a year ago, in December 2007, where Darlington annihilated the Mighty Mariners 0-4 in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides
Grimsby Town's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Mighty Mariners have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.
Darlington's away form is none too clever either, coming away with three points on 3 occasions, but drawing 1 and losing 2. The games have constituted a decent return of 12 goals for the The Quakers, and 3 goals against.
Grimsby Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 6 points from 14 matches. Darlington are holding the final promotion place in the Coca-Cola League Two, and have accumulated 25 points from the 14 games they have played so far.
