Grimsby Draw no Bet

Grimsby play one rung further down the English football ladder than Burton, though The Mariners could have what it takes to dump Albion out of the FA Cup on Saturday. Grimsby have won two of their last three matches on home soil, while Burton were thumped 5-0 at Morecambe in their last test on the road. With superior momentum and home advantage spurring them on, Grimsby could spring a surprise here, though take them in the draw no bet stakes for added insurance.

Over 2.5 Goals

Matches featuring Grimsby have been high on excitement in recent weeks with three of their last four fixtures producing three or more goals. Similarly, over 2.5 goals has also landed in four of Burton Albion’s last five matches and another high-scoring tussle could be in the pipeline when the Brewers head to Lincolnshire this weekend. With both defences looking more than a little leaky at present, we recommend another stake on over 2.5 goals here.

Grimsby vs Burton Albion Team News & Injuries

Read all of the latest injury updates and team news for Saturday’s FA Cup meeting between Grimsby and Burton Albion.

Grimsby

Attacker Ryan Taylor looks like he will miss Saturday's game, though defender Anthony Driscoll-Glennon is free to feature again following a one-match suspension. Grimsby beat Stockport 1-0 in their last fixture on New Year's Day, giving them a timely confidence booster ahead of their cup tie.

Predicted Lineup for Grimsby: Crocombe – Smith, Waterfall, Maher – Holohan, Green, Efete, Amos – Clifton, Khan, McAtee

Burton Albion

Elliot Thorpe and Conor Shaughnessy are both out injured for Burton Albion, though the injury picture looks relatively promising for the Brewers beyond that pair of midfielders. Albion were hammered 5-0 at Morecambe in their last game, a result that might have knocked their self-belief.

Predicted Lineup for Burton Albion: Garratt – Mariappa, Brayford, Ndaba – Hamer, Taylor, Oshilaja, Onyango, Borthwick-Jackson – Kamwa, Adeboyejo

Player to Watch – Anthony Driscoll-Glennon

Flying fullback Anthony Driscoll-Glennon has been a dynamic force down the left flank for Grimsby this season and the 23-year-old has provided four goal contributions from his defensive berth. Driscoll-Glennon is just back from a suspension for an accumulation of yellow cards and his tackling should be sharp again on Saturday.

Starting Lineups

Official lineups are usually released approximately one hour before kick-off.
