Match Preview | v Salford City

The Mariners welcome Salford City to Blundell Park tonight in Sky Bet League Two (kick off, 7:45pm) in our first of back-to-back home games.

Town boss Paul Hurst will be looking for a reaction from his players after slipping to a last-minute defeat at Harrogate Town on Boxing Day.

While Salford City are unbeaten in their last four and sit 10th in the table, three points off a play-off spot.

Here’s everything you need to know heading into tonight’s game.

Earlier this season the teams played out a 1-1 draw at the Peninsula Stadium – Lewis Richardson grabbing Town’s goal that afternoon.
