Odds: 8/11 @ 888sport

Looking to widen their buffer at the top of the National League table in midweek, Halifax will host a struggling Grimsby on Tuesday night.

Starting with the hosts, putting in a hugely impressive display over the weekend as Halifax cruised their way to a 4-0 romp against Eastleigh, the Shaymen find themselves in the midst of a real purple patch. Opening up the midweek fixtures sat holding a one-point buffer at the top of the table, Pete Wild’s men are also enjoying a six-match unbeaten run across all formats. Despite having to settle for a last-gasp point when they faced off against Tuesday’s guests on January 3rd, the Yorkshire-based outfit will know that they have a real chance on home soil. Looking to widen their buffer over the chasing pack, it should be highlighted that Halifax have remarkably won 10 of their previous 11 contests in front of their own supporters, a run that stems all the way back to August 21st.

As for the visitors, while Grimsby might have been last seen snatching that injury-time point against the league leaders, it does not cover what has been a worrying run of form. Crashing back down to earth after their stellar bounce back in October, Paul Hurst’s side have managed to collect just a single point from any of their last five matchups. Freefalling their way down the table, the Mariners have also won just one of their previous 10 outings, a run that stems back to October 23rd. Knowing that they face a huge task on their travels, the former Southend boss has seen his side continue to struggle away from Blundell Park. On a run that is highlighted by a 4-0 drumming against Stockport, Grimsby have lost each of their last six straight away fixtures by an aggregate score of 13-3.
