Grimsby Town vs Harrogate Town Match Analysis & Prediction
21/02/2023 10:45 pm
Grimsby Town hopes to extend their unbeaten run when they host Harrogate Town in League Two on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the visitors have drawn both of their last two matches as they look to remain outside the relegation places.
Grimsby boss Paul Hurst must have been delighted to see his side return to winning ways at the weekend.
The automatic promotion contenders had taken an early lead through Sam Hoskins’ opener, but Luke Waterfall equalized before Anthony Glennon’s injury-time strike sparked jubilant scenes in the away end.
Winning away to a side flying considerably higher than them in the table was perhaps typical in their first season back in the Football League, having now collected eight more points on the road than they have at Blundell Park.
Meanwhile, Crewe Alexandra scored two late goals to claim a 2-2 draw at Wetherby Road. The Sulphurites looked to have earned a crucial victory through strikes from Jack Muldoon and Kazeem Olaigbe on either side of half-time.
But Dan Agyei’s 83rd-minute penalty set up a nervy finish for the hosts before Tariq Uwakwe equalised with only one minute of normal time remaining.
Harrogate’s failure to win means that Crawley Town is within three points of them with a game in hand.

Grimsby Town could be without Jordan Cropper and Lewis Richardson for Tuesday’s match with Morecambe. Still, recent returns to fitness of Ryan Taylor and goalscorer Waterfall have given manager Paul Hurst a boost. If there are no further injury problems within his squad, the former Ipswich Town boss is unlikely to make any changes to the side that dispatched Northampton last time.

Harrogate is likely to travel without Dior Angus, Will Smith, and Stephen Dooley due to injury. Despite throwing away two late goals against Crewe last time, manager Peter Weaver is likely to have been pleased by his side’s overall performance. He may look to retain the same starting XI, providing his squad has no other fitness concerns.
