History of the Exeter City v Grimsby Town fixture

Exeter City are ready to welcome Grimsby Town to St James' Park on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Grecians are clearly on top, having won 8 and lost only 3 of the 14 games.

The previous match played between the two at St James' Park was more than three years back, in November 2004, the Grecians carving out a narrow 1-0 victory in a F.A. Cup match.
