History of the Grimsby Town v Bury fixture

Bury face a trip to Grimsby Town at Blundell Park on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The The Shakers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 22 and win only 7 of the 35 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in February 2009, with Bury inflicting a narrow 1 - 2 defeat upon the Mighty Mariners in a League Two match.

Recent respective form guides

Grimsby Town need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While Mighty Mariners have scored 5, a worringly large 11 have been leaked at the other end.

Bury's away form is none too clever either, accumulating just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While the The Shakers have hit 8 goals, 14 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Grimsby Town are stuck down in the relegation zone of Coca-Cola League Two with a return of just 17 points from their 23 games thus far. Bury lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola League Two, picking up 35 from their 22 games so far.
