Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town will be hoping to improve on their poor home form, collecting just 4 draws from the last six contests. Only 5 goals have been registered in this time, with 7 in the wrong end.

Shrewsbury Tn.'s away form is none too clever either, with 3 victories and just 1 loss from the last six. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 4 have been let in at the wrong end.

Grimsby Town are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League Two with a return of just 24 points from their 33 games thus far. Shrewsbury Tn.'s total of 55 points from their 34 games sees them sitting in the playoff places in Coca-Cola League Two.
