History of the Luton Town v Grimsby Town fixture

Grimsby Town travel to take on Luton Town at Kenilworth Road on Tuesday evening, hoping to improve upon an average previous return from this fixture. Of the 19 games played, Mighty Mariners have recorded 6 wins, and Luton Town have come away with 7 victories.

The last time the two teams met at Luton Town was back in August 2003, over five years ago, with Grimsby Town inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the The Hatters in a League Division Two match.
