Brighton and Both Teams To Score

Reason for tip

It is hard to see League Two Grimsby denying Brighton a win in normal time but the visitors can at least get on the scoresheet. Grimsby struck twice against Southampton earlier in this competition and have pulled off an upset in every round so far. The Mariners’ cup run looks likely to end at the Amex, but they can at least manage a consolation effort.

Brighton 5-1

Reason for tip

Brighton have shown a ruthless streak on occasion this season and have posted some big wins. Albion beat Middlesbrough 5-1 in the FA Cup in January and have managed five goals in a game twice this season, so a 5-1 win for the hosts has some appeal.

Evan Ferguson To Score Anytime

Reason for tip

Albion youngster Evan Ferguson should get a chance to start on Sunday and he has impressed when called upon with six goals in 18 games across all competitions. The 18-year-old was the hero in the 1-0 win over Stoke in the previous round and can add to his haul on Sunday.

Brighton vs Grimsby Town Predictions

  • Grimsby scored twice against Southampton and also scored five goals in two games against Luton in the previous rounds of this competition.
  • Grimsby have scored seven goals in their last six games.
  • Brighton have shown a ruthless side this season, scoring five on two occasions and they beat West Ham by a four-goal margin recently.

Brighton bid to end Mariners’ fairytale run

Grimsby have enjoyed an incredible run through to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup but they are likely to come up short against a quality outfit in Brighton on Sunday.

The Mariners have pulled off an upset in every round, seeing off a trio of League One clubs in the first three rounds before victories over Championship side Luton and then Premier League strugglers Southampton.

Brighton have pulled off a minor upset of their own on their way to the last eight as they overcame Liverpool earlier in the competition and they should be able to avoid a slip-up against League Two opponents as they push for some silverware.

Grimsby could muster a goal

Understandably, Brighton are the heavy favourites to win this game in 90 minutes so to squeeze some value out of this cup mismatch a home win with both teams to score looks an option.

Grimsby scored twice against Southampton in the last round, although they only managed three shots on goal, and they hit five against Luton in two games as that tie was forced to a replay. The League Two outfit also put five past a very good Plymouth teams in their opening FA Cup clash and in general they have been in good scoring form with seven goals in their last six games.

This is essentially a shot-to-nothing game for Grimsby as they are such huge underdogs so they can afford to throw men forward at times, and they are likely to keep pushing even if they fall three of four goals behind.

Brighton are unlikely to make too many changes but a few regulars could still be rested, and if that is indeed the case that may offer Grimsby a few chances to make a breakthrough even if ultimately they only manage a consolation effort.

Brighton can be ruthless

Brighton have put a few teams to the sword this season and there is a chance they could prove simply too good for Grimsby on Sunday.

Albion beat Middlesbrough 5-1 earlier in the competition and recently claimed a 4-0 win over West Ham. Whenever a game like this comes around it is tough to predict a correct score but there is a chance Brighton could run away with this game and a 5-1 victory for the hosts has some appeal in the correct score market as Albion have managed five goals in two games this term but haven’t managed to better that.

Youngster Evan Ferguson was the hero for the Seagulls in the previous round with the only goal of the game at Stoke. The 18-year-old may be handed a start against Grimsby and he has impressed when called upon, with three goals in 10 Premier League games and six in 18 across all competitions, so he looks a reasonable candidate for an anytime goal.
