Grimsby vs Barrow Best Predictions and Odds

Barrow dropped a significant two points in their last match which means that they are now in a world of trouble when it comes to their chances of progressing into the promotion playoffs.

Barrow to Win

There is no middle ground in this Grimsby vs Barrow prediction as the visiting team has no choice but to go all out on the offensive end trying to earn three points. Barrow is four points away from a top-seven position. They have won three times in their last five matches, but even though that kind of form should be good enough, it is not. Barrow will look to beat a team that has nothing to gain from either result as Grimsby is settled in the middle of the table without any real chance of moving upward.

Over 2.5 Goals

Barrow is known as an ‘under' team. Their matches average only 2.2 goals per contest, and for the season they had 26 games with fewer than three goals in the back of the net. However, that percentage has increased as they played five ‘over' games in their last five outings. Grimsby had three over 2.5 goals matches from the same number of recent outings. The last three Grimsby vs Barrow h2h matches ended with only one goal per match and that is the counterargument for this particular bet.

Team News, Grimsby vs Barrow Lineups, and Preview

Grimsby

There was a time during the season when Grimsby players believed they have a chance of playing for promotion playoffs, but when a team has double digits in win, draw, and loss columns, it's hard to take those ambitions seriously. Grimsby will play in League Two next season as well and they will hope things can improve.

Potential lineup: Crocombe, Gallacher, Maher, Smith, Efete, Clifton, Green, Morris, Khan, Taylor, Lloyd.

Barrow

Winning is everything at this point of the season for Barrow who, contrary to their next opponent, still have a chance of advancing into the top seven, but those odds are dropping down slowly, especially when they are not winning games. Barrow lost too many games, and they are a rare sight with one of the lowest margins of draw games in the league this season. At this point of the season, Barrow players certainly won't be thinking about losing more points.

Potential lineup: Farman, Feely, McClelland, Canavan, Newby, Gotts, Neal, White, Brough, Gordon, Whitfield.

Starting Lineups

Starting lineups are usually released 60 minutes before kick-off.

Player to Watch: Ben Whitfield

Nobody created more chances for a goal on team Barrow than Ben Whitfield. The 27-year-old midfielder has 12 assists on his resume this season and he also managed to score five goals for a team that is trying hard to break into the group of teams who will play in the promotion playoffs.
