Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Barrow will look to make amends for back-to-back losses to Leyton Orient and Tranmere Rovers when they take on Mansfield Town on Saturday. The Bluebirds suffered a dip in form, but despite the drop of points, they are still sitting in the playoffs berth. Since there are no fresh selection worries in the home team, head coach Pete Wild is unlikely to make changes to the team that faced the Super Whites at the weekend.
The Yellows, on the other hand, have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Gillingham and Crewe, while sharing the spoils with Hartlepool. Mansfield look sharp in front of goal, and given the current atmosphere in Barrow’s dressing room, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. In their last meeting at the venue the Yellows defeated the Bluebirds 3-1.
Highlighted Player (Jordan Bowery):
Born in Nottingham, England, on July 2, 1991, Jordan Bowery is a professional footballer who plays for Mansfield Town. Bowery played for a number of English clubs, but we should mentioned the notable ones only.
The Mansfield No. 9 was a part of the likes of Aston Villa, Bradford City, Rotherham United, and Crewe Alexandra in the past. Jordan Bowery joined the Yellows in the summer of 2020, signing for the club on a free transfer. He made his Mansfield Town debut in the League two in a goalless draw with Tranmere Rovers on September 12, 2020.
Bowery scored his first goal for the Yellows in a 2-2 draw with Leyton Orient on September 19, 2020. Centre-forward is the position that suits him the most, but he is used as both left and right winger as well. His preferred foot is right. Jordan Bowery has never played for the England national team.
