      Port Vale and Grimsby are both level in the League Two table on twenty-eight points, and with a goal difference that is just one better than that of their guests its Vale who sit higher in the table. Both teams have only lost one of their last six matches in all competitions and were expecting a very competitive game between the pair on Wednesday.

      Port Vale could only manage a goalless draw away at the divisions bottom club Macclesfield on Saturday, and were outplayed in every department by their hosts. Macclesfield had 53% of the possession, eight corners to Vale’s six, and twice as many shots during the ninety minutes. Port Vale failed to produce a single shot on target against their struggling hosts and were lucky to escape with a point on the balance of play. That draw saw Port Vale move onto twenty-eight points for the season, but allowed Grimsby to catch up with them after they ran riot over Notts County.

      Clifton opened the scoring against Port Vale in the fourth minute and Davis doubled the hosts advantage eight minutes before the break. Grimsby Town always looked like scoring the games third goal, which they did in the sixty-sixth minute through that man Davis once more. Thomas wrapped up a comfortable and convincing 4-0 win for Grimsby with two minutes left on the clock, in what was another poor defensive display from the visitors.

      Grimsby Town played host to Notts County back in October and ran out 2-0 winners, despite not seeing as much of the ball or having anywhere near as many shots as their guests. Thomas put Grimsby 1-0 up in the very first minute, and that goal separated the two sides at the half time interval. The hosts started the second half brighter and doubled their advantage in the fifty-third minute through Hooper. Vale had 55% of the overall possession and fourteen shots during the match, but wayward finishing cost the visitors on this occasion.

      With four wins, one draw, and one defeat from their last six matches, Grimsby Town head into Wednesday’s game as the form favourites. Notts County have also only lost one of their last six, but the hosts have managed just the two wins and three draws during that period. Pope has scored eight goals in the league this season for the hosts and will provide the focal point of their attack on Wednesday. Thomas scored when the pair last met and leads the way for Grimsby with six League Two goals to his name.

      We’re confident that Grimsby will take something from this match and have backed the visitors with a double chance bet, and for the scoreline to end 2-1 in their favour. Grimsby Town are unbeaten in their last five matches against Port Vale.The visitors have only lost one of their last seven matches, while Port Vale have drawn their last three league games. Grimsby have scored more goals than Port Vale this season, and we’re backing attack to beat defence on Wednesday.
