History of the Grimsby Town v Wrexham fixture

Grimsby Town prepare to entertain Wrexham at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Mighty Mariners are clearly on top, having won 14 and lost only 6 of the 27 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Blundell Park was less than a year ago, in February 2007, the Mighty Mariners carving out a narrow 2-1 victory in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town have had an average home run of late, winning and losing 3 each of the last six games. While Mighty Mariners have scored 5, a worringly large 8 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town see themselves just below half way in the Coca-Cola League Two, showing a record of 30 points from their 25 games played so far, Wrexham find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 23 games have yielded only 15 points.
