Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town's poor home run has seen them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While Mighty Mariners have scored 8, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Rotherham's away form is none too clever either, picking up two good wins, but losing three, from the last six. The Millers have scored 7 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.

Grimsby are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 17 points from 24 matches. Rotherham are currently lying in 19th place in Coca-Cola League Two having mustered a points tally of 23 from their 24 matches played.
