Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Crawley Town and Mansfield Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table, face each other at the People’s Pension Stadium on day 15 of the new League Two campaign. The Red Devils did well to beat Newport 2-1 in their last league match, with the team putting an end to their four-match losing run, and, to make things even better for the fans, interim manager Lewis Young and his men outclassed Aston Villa U21 5-2 in the EFL Trophy. Aramide Oteh is pushing for a rare start after impressing in Tuesday’s game, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Yellows, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive league win. Mansfield are likely to adopt an attack-minded approach in Saturday’s clash, and given Crawley’s signs of improvement in front of goal, we believe that over 2.5 goals betting option should be considered. Nigel Clough is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated Walsall at the weekend.
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.
