History of the Barnet v Grimsby Town fixture

Barnet prepare to entertain Grimsby Town at Underhill Stadium on Saturday afternoon, hoping to break their duck against the visitors. Each previous meeting has resulted in defeat for the Bees.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Underhill Stadium was just last season, in November 2007, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-3 winners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Barnet's disastrous home run has meant they have managed only 2 draws from the last six matches. While Bees have scored 4, a worringly large 14 have been leaked at the other end.

Grimsby Town's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the Mighty Mariners have hit 7 goals, 10 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Barnet are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 19 points from 23 matches. Grimsby Town are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 14 points from 23 matches.

FootyMad's prediction ...

Its been a distinctly poor show from Barnet at home in recent games, and, though I cannot see a run starting here, I do think the Bees will at least gain a draw. No-score draw

Barnet Failed to win in previous 7 home matches.
Grimsby Town Not won in previous 4 away matches.
An overall losing run of 2 games.
No win in the 3 most recent games.
