Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by a 2-0 win over Salford City, Grimsby Town will look to keep on climbing the League Two standings when they face Mansfield at their Blundell Park. The Mariners proved their worth in the midweek victory, with summer signing Abobaker Eisa scoring a brace and, no doubt, the Sudan forward is going to make life difficult for Mansfield defenders on Matchday 4. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team ahead of Saturday’s game.
The Yellows, meanwhile, have been scoring goals for fun in the new League Two campaign and seeing that Grimsby are capable of finding the net on home soil, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Kilgour and Johnson were forced to leave the pitch earlier than expected in a 2-2 draw with Doncaster, with Bowery and Boateng being ready to step up. In their last encounter at the venue two sides played out a 1-1 draw.
Highlighted Team (Mansfield):

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.
