Tip Reasoning

  • Notts County lost just twice at home during the regular season (W15, D5).
  • Grimsby failed to win 64% of their away league games (W8, D6, L8).
  • Grimsby’s only victory across their last four away games was against relegated King’s Lynn.

Notts County can justify their home advantage

After a long season, Notts County have the advantage of playing at home in this single leg play-off quarter final by virtue of finishing one place and five points above Grimsby Town.

The away side on the day won both encounters during the regular season, though that was seemingly just a blip for Notts County as the defeat against Grimsby here earlier in the campaign was one of only two home defeats all season.

The nature of Notts County’s home wins this season is notable, with nine of their 15 victories here at Meadow Lane this season also saw both teams score. Combine that with the fact that this is just a one game play-off and this could buck the trend of low-scoring first leg games.

Stick with the hosts

Grimsby come into this clash looking to extend an impressive seven-game unbeaten run of away games (W3, D4), though the only win across their last four trips was against relegated opponents, thus raising questions around their credentials ahead of this game.

That is not to mention their indifferent away record during the regular season. Grimsby picked up a considerable majority of their points at home (61%) while managing just a 36% win-rate on their travels.

Consequently, we predict that Notts County will win this play-off encounter without the need for extra time and penalties. As for the correct score, we are siding with an exciting 3-1 home win, one which would make it four wins by a 2+ goal margin across their last five at Meadow Lane.
