Ebene News – GB – Live updates as Grimsby Town take on Bradford City in League Two

Watch all the action as Grimsby Town look to follow their derby victory over Bradford City in League Two

Grimsby Town is hoping for a gift early tonight in their last game before Christmas!

The Mariners welcome Bradford City to Blundell Park, where they will look to follow the success of their derby day this weekend

Town of course ended their winless run by beating Scunthorpe United 1-0 on Saturday, and they hope to earn three more points against the managerless Bantams tonight

Bradford also ended their own winless streak, having claimed their first eight-leg victory over Cambridge this weekend

Only two points separate the Mariners from their visitors before kick-off, which means it’s a great opportunity for them to move away from the relegation zone tonight

And there is a lot of bad blood between these two teams after the game postponed earlier this season, so both sides will be eager to fight

He’s an absolute pearl of Lee Novak to be fair as he sends his kick over McKeown and into the back of the net

Jackson Jr flips his man upside down and makes his way into the penalty area from the left, but his square ball is cut and cleared

The town descends to the right with Morais looking to push Hendrie away, but there is too much on the ball

Bennett is looking to send him from afar, but he is led by the Bradford defense

Spokes and Clifton try to rebuild, with the cross looking dangerous from first behind for a corner

The ball enters from Bennett – it heads for Spokes on the edge of the box, which goes on the fly for the first time, but he doesn’t catch it properly as he cuts it off the post

Good little fate for Town – Hewitt looks to spot Morais from the back, but a Bradford defender just manages to get his head in first

The hosts soon got the ball back and Hendrie takes a shot at 20 yards, but there’s not much power on it as O’Donnell takes it comfortably

The Mariners descend with the right via Jackson Jr and Morais, the latter kicking the ball

He walks over to Preston, who raises his lips before he can get a shot, and Clarke brings the ball to the visitors

Bradford is first on our left, before the Mariners force their way onto the pitch from the usual tunnel

Both teams return to the locker rooms – just over 10 minutes before kick-off here

This man is making his return to Blundell Park tonight, and given the bad blood between the sides recently, he might have a thing or two to say to his former manager

Just the only change for the Mariners tonight, with Luke Waterfall coming to the side and replacing Mattie Pollock, who isn’t on the squad

It is not yet clear whether he is officially a Grimsby Town player, with Ian Holloway telling us yesterday that the club are still awaiting clearance, although it seems quite likely that he will turn for the Mariners
