FA Trophy Final betting preview - Back Mariners for Wembley double



England's Euro 2016 warm-up match against Turkey will be played at the Etihad Stadium this weekend as Wembley plays host to the FA Trophy and Grimsby Town could be forgiven for thinking of the National Stadium as a second home, given that this will be their second visit there in the space of seven days.

The Mariners left Wembley last weekend having secured for themselves League Two football thanks to a 3-1 victory over Forest Green Rovers. Omar Bogle scored twice for Grimsby on Sunday afternoon, the former Solihull Moors striker taking his season tally to 15 for the season. Any late Grimsby worries were eased by a late Nathan Arnold clincher and the Mariners now find themselves back in the Football League.

The Lincolnshire side are now favourites to emerge victorious once again beneath the Wembley arch by clinching the FA Trophy for the very first time.

The final National League table saw some 32 points separate these two sides and Halifax ended the campaign by being relegated to National North following a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield on the season's final day.

The West Yorkshire outfit won't be in the highest of spirits following their relegation, however they can take some hope from the fact that they beat Grimsby 4-2 in the last meeting between the sides, a much better outcome than the previous result which saw Halifax demolished 7-0 by the Mariners.

Nevertheless, Halifax will certainly give it their all this coming weekend and whilst they will be confident of holding Grimsby over ninety minutes, ultimately it will be the Mariners who will be enjoying their second successive Wembley Sunday.

Back Grimsby to win and both teams to score at 3/1 with Bet365.
