Grimsby seems to be tanking a bit now after such a good start to the new season as it has been back to back defeats in the league and an EFL Cup exit in midweek. So the Mariners are desperately trying to find a positive in this one as they welcome Wycombe to Blundell Park. Wanderers have collected four points from their opening three games of the season but will be out looking to respond to a disappointing home loss to Notts County last weekend, when their defence was taken to the cleaners. Grimsby are 29/20 for the win in this one which leaves Wycombe at 9/5 with William Hill.
The Mariners looked set to get some early form under their belt this season as they opened with a strong away victory at Chesterfield. Things have gone backwards from there though for them, losing back to back games against Coventry and Stevenage. Neither of those were easy games particularly but they will just be a bit concerned at having given up five goals across those two defeats. Can they pick themselves up though because they don’t have the winning form at home against the Wanderers?
Wycombe have produced a W1 D1 L1 record for the league season so far, so they are searching for consistency. Their only success did happen come out on the road this season when they took a 3-2 away win at Port Value. They have produced enough going forward to be a threat in this one because they have scored at least two goals in each of their three league games this season. The trouble is, they have conceded at least two in each of their games as well. If nothing, games involving Wanderers have been entertaining. They have had a lot of goalscoring input from different players.
Head to Head News
First off, Wycombe have gone W2 D2 in their last four visits to Blundell Park and took a 2-1 win there last season. In the overall head to head between the two clubs in all competitions, Wycombe are 9-2 ahead with seven drawn matches. So Wanderers really have the upper hand in this head to head deal.
