Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Roots Hall pits together Southend United and Grimsby Town, the two teams who sit in the bottom half of the table ahead of Matchday 18. Southend United desperately needed a win against Scunthorpe, and they managed to get one thanks to James Olayinka’s goal. The Seasiders regained a much-needed confidence, but they need to keep on improving their game if they are to avoid relegation to the National League.
Grimsby Town, on the other hand, do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Essex. The Mariners collected only one point in total from the previous four league fixtures, and given the importance of Tuesday’s clash for the hosts, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting in the English fourth tier the two teams played out a 1-1 draw.
