Recent respective form guides

Macclesfield Town's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While The Silkmen have scored 9, a worringly large 12 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Mighty Mariners have hit 5 goals, 12 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Macclesfield find themselves struggling down in 18th position in the league having picked up 17 points from their 16 matches. Grimsby Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 10 points from 17 matches.
