Bitesize Prediction: Wrexham vs Grimsby – 28/05/05

Competition: National League

Market: Over 1.5 goals

Odds: 4/11 @ 888sport

With a spot in the final of this season’s play-offs up for grabs on Saturday lunchtime, Wrexham will welcome Grimsby to the Racecourse Ground.

Starting with the hosts, while Wrexham might have gained plenty of plaudits from across the National League this season, the Dragons are seeking an immediate boost here. Suffering what would have been a heartbreaking 1-0 loss against Bromely in the FA Trophy final at Wembley, Phil Parkinson’s side will know that they must dust themselves down quickly. Although they might still find themselves tipped as a leading pick to book a Football League return this year, Wrexham could also only sign off their regular-season run with a shock 3-0 drumming away at Dagenham & Redbridge. However, despite their brief blip, the Welsh outfit have gained a fearsome reputation for their success on home soil. Last seen at the Racecourse Ground bagging a 3-0 win against Stockport, Parkinson’s men are remarkably unbeaten in front of their own supporters since November 30th.

As for the visitors, managing to snatch a stunning last-gasp winner in extra-time away at Notts County last weekend, there is no doubt that Grimsby will be looking to keep up that momentum here. Now securing back-to-back play-off finishes, Paul Hurst’s men have lost just one of their last 11 outings, a run that stems all the way back to March 22nd. However, despite suffering a 1-0 defeat when they faced off against their semi-final opponents four months ago, the Mariners have gained a reputation for their success on the road. Including signing off their regular-season run with a remarkable 4-4 draw away at Eastleigh, it should be noted that Grimsby are unbeaten away from Brundell Park since the start of March. In a contest that could be an enjoyable affair, we’re backing over 1.5 goals here.
