Grimsby Town Vs Nottingham Forest Tips and Prediction
In fact, Grimsby, despite only placing sixth in the National League previous season, was admitted to the Football League at the first attempt following an incredible play-off run.
Gavan Holahan’s goal against Notts County was essential as The Mariners went on an incredible run. Paul Hurst’s team defeated Notts County, Wrexham, and Solihull Moors after extra time.
Hurst will be confident that his team can avoid getting caught up in a relegation battle after picking up four points from their first four League Two games. Additionally, their victory over Crewe Alexandra in the EFL Cup’s first round was a great way to make their return to the competition official.
Brennan Johnson’s goal at Goodison Park would have disappointed Steve Cooper’s team, but the former Swansea manager understands he must be patient before anticipating any possible fireworks because so many new players are still settling in.
Cooper may give some of his newcomers a chance to impress their new manager during Tuesday’s cup match at Grimsby, but he will be wary of the risk that an upset may jeopardize their season.
Cooper at Grimsby is expected to give opportunities to numerous new arrivals, so there is a risk the visitors may be a little disjointed.
However,we anticipate a win here for Nottingham Forest after a disappointing weekend.
