Grimsby will be looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat at Walsall as they take on Graham Alexander’s Salford City, who started their season with a 2-2 draw at home to Exeter City.
The Mariners will be hoping they can get a tune out of new recruit Sean Scannell, who had a poor debut last week, but if they can get him playing, they will have one of the best players in the league. Whilst both games finished 1-0 last season, they will be looking to take advantage of the fact that this Salford side fielded a fairly strong team in the EFL Cup loss to Everton.
As ever, the Ammies have a host of new high-profile signings, with Darron Gibson, Tom Clarke and Ian Henderson all joining the club. This has made Salford start the season as title favourites and have added pressure on them to gain promotion to the third tier for the first time in the club’s history.
There have been over 2.5 goals in their last three games, however, Salford are yet to win any of them. You can back Salford to get their first win of the season, with over 2.5 goals in the game at 3/1 with Sky Bet - have this bet in your bet slip here!
