History of the Bury v Grimsby Town fixture

Bury prepare to entertain Grimsby Town at Gigg Lane on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The The Shakers are clearly on top, having won 18 and lost only 6 of the 34 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Gigg Lane was less than a year ago, in November 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a League Two match.
