Betting Tip: Grimsby @ 7/5 with williamhill

Grimsby Town have been struggling to get back in the Football League for the past five seasons, although the Mariners seem better equipped than ever before and can bring their excellent form to the table in the FA Cup tonight.

A packed Blundell Park might see Paul Hurst’s team get the better of a Shrewsbury side who might actually be facing Grimsby in the league next season, with the Shropshire outfit propped up just above the relegation zone in League One.

Micky Mellon’s team enjoyed promotion last term although they have lost eleven of their twenty matches so far this season and look vulnerable in a cup clash against a team who aren’t used to losing this term.

Since losing at home to Cheltenham, the Mariners have won their past five matches, recently enjoying consecutive 1-0 wins which shows they can grind out results against resolute opposition in addition to scoring plenty.

Padraig Amond is one big reason why Grimsby are faring so well and the striker has enjoyed ten goals in his past eight matches, with the Irishman finally getting his career on track after spending the past few seasons with Morecambe and Accrington.

We have to side with the Mariners this evening considering there’s not a great deal between these teams and Grimsby were particularly profitable against league opposition during pre-season which demonstrates they are at the right level to succeed.
