Recent respective form guides

Macclesfield Town's home form is most definitely relegation standard, collecting just 1 solitary point from the last six. While Silkmen have scored 4, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town's away form is none too clever either, unbeaten in their last six, consisting of three wins and three draws. The games have constituted a decent return of 8 goals for the Mighty Mariners, and 5 goals against.

Macclesfield are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 31 from their 31 matches played. Grimsby Town's 42 points from 31 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 11th position.
