Grimsby take on Braintree on Thursday 5th May, 2016, with kickoff at 19:00. This match is currently being shown LIVE on BT Sport 1.
After 46 games and more than 100 goals between them, the only thing to separate Grimsby and Braintree at the end of the season was a single point. Now they meet in a battle so epic that George RR Martin would kill off the managers before they made it to the dugouts, to decide who gets to go to the playoff finals this year and try to enter the football league.
Neither side screams ‘glamour’ at you of course, and it’s unlikely they’ll be in the Premier League anytime soon, but there will be passion and effort on display at the very least, and that’s not to be sniff at.
