Our prediction for this FA Cup match:
Whaddon Road will host Sunday’s FA Cup game between Cheltenham Town and Mansfield Town, the two League Two sides. Cheltenham are determined to return to the League One, but they have big ambitions for the 2020/21 FA Cup campaign as well. The Robins, though, do not seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team failing to win the previous six games in all competitions.
The Yellows aim to build on back-to-back wins over Scunthorpe and Port Vale, and given Cheltenham’s current form, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting team. A man to keep an eye on in the away team will be Nathaniel Jordan Bowery, who scored a hat-trick in the triumph over the Valiants at the weekend. In their last meeting in the League Two the two sides played out a goalless draw.
Highlighted Player (Chris Hussey):
Born in Hammersmith, England, Christopher Hussey is an experienced defender who plays for Cheltenham Town in the League Two. After spending his youth career at the likes of Woking and AFC Wimbledon, Hussey continued playing for the Dons at senior level.
He played for a number of English clubs in the past, but, no doubt, the most notable one is Sheffield United. Chris Hussey made seven appearances for the Blades in the League One, but nowadays he is a League Two player. His main position is left-back, but he is capable of producing fine displays as a left midfielder as well.
It has to be noted that he was called up for the England C team as a standby. Christopher Hussey made his Cheltenham Town debut on August 21, 2018 in a 1-1 draw with Macclesfield Town. He scored his first goal with the Robins in a 4-2 loss to Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Mansfield):
Founded in 1897, Mansfield Town are a professional club that compete in the League 2, the English fourth tier. The Stags are well known for their yellow shirts and blue shorts, while the colour of their away kit is black. Field Mill is the club’s home ground, the stadium with the capacity of 9,186.
The venue was built back in 1861 and renovated in 1999. Chesterfield and Notts County are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals. Mansfield Town did well to win the Football League Trophy in 1986/1987 season, with the team beating Bristol City on penalties at Wembley Stadium.
The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the regular time, with Kevin Kent and Glyn Riley scoring for Mansfield Town and Bristol City respectively. Goalkeeper Rod Arnold is the player with most appearances as he played 513 games for the Stags in all competitions.
