Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 4 goals have been registered in this time, with 6 in the wrong end.

Luton Town's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. While the The Hatters have hit 5 goals, 9 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Grimsby Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 5 points from 11 matches. Luton Town find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 11 games have yielded only -18 points.
