Sunderland vs Grimsby Match Preview

Sunderland have seen their unbeaten streak ended by Lincoln (2-0) on Saturday as a brace from Tyler Walker proved enough for the rivals to secure a comfortable win at Sincil Bank, now hosting Grimsby Town for their EFL Trophy clash desperate to recuperate quickly and open their campaign in Northern Group A with a win.

Black Cats have bagged three wins and two draws in five outings across competitions beforehand, which should still have them confident on Tuesday evening. They’ve beaten Sheffield United (0-1 in League Cup) and MK Dons (2-1 in League One) in late September and retaining such a streak in October will be a crucial task.

Grimsby have been very unpredictable in League Two and sit two points behind the top 7 after 12 games played. They’ve failed to connect any two same results over the past month and come into the match after seeing Mansfield (0-1) snatch all three points at Blundell Park with a last-gasp winner from Krystian Pearce.

Mariners struggled to capitalize on the goals scored away from home and this could prove worrying despite a 1-3 win at Exeter on their last trip. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and will hardly be happy with thriller seen at Oldham (2-2), Salford (1-0), and Chelsea (7-1 in League Cup) since mid-September.

We feel Sunderland will be able to capitalize on such woes on the rivals’ end and we’ll now back them to turn an exciting contest their way, as we go for a Home win and a Yes on Both teams to score at an eye-catching 2/1 with bet365.

We have seen Sunderland scoring and conceding numbers of goals at this ground lately and this feels like further evidence for such a bet. With that in mind, we expect another high-scoring occasion at Stadium of Light and we’re also backing Over 2.5 Goals FT as more of a banker bet at 8/13 with William Hill.
