Grimsby Town prepare to entertain Rochdale at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Mighty Mariners are clearly on top, having won 13 and lost only 5 of the 22 games.
The most recent encounter between these two sides at Blundell Park was less than a year ago, in October 2007, with Rochdale inflicting a narrow 1-2 defeat upon the Mighty Mariners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides
Grimsby Town's woeful home form means they have chalked up just a single victory, with 5 defeats, from the last six. While Mighty Mariners have scored 6, a worringly large 10 have been leaked at the other end.
Rochdale's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 leaked at the wrong end.

FootyMad's prediction ...
Its been a distinctly poor show from Grimsby Town at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Mighty Mariners will at least gain a draw. No-score draw
