Grimsby will welcome Mansfield to Blundell Park for their second round of the EFL Trophy in the Northern Group F on Tuesday.
The two side recorded contrasting results on the opening day as Grimsby fell to a 3-1 defeat to Derby County at away, while Mansfield claimed a 3-2 win over Manchester City U21.
Now Grimsby sit at the bottom of the group on zero points, while Mansfield sit second on three points. Therefore both sides will be looking for a win on Tuesday as they both look to boost their bids to advance to next stage of the competition, although a defeat for Grimsby will be more damaging than it is to Mansfield.
Both sides have won two and drawn one of their last three matches in League Two and both are unevenly matched at the moment and we expect a closely-fought encounter.
Grimsby vs Mansfield head to head
Both sides have met in 26 encounters since 2004 with Grimsby claiming 11 victories, while Mansfield have claimed 10 victories and there have been five draws.
