Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town will be looking to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Cambridge United when they host Crawley Town at their Field Mill. The Yellows have been making progress week by weekend, and if they continue with fine displays in the League Two, Nigel Cloug’s would move closer to the playoffs berth. Reid, who scored the winner against Cambridge United, should be deployed up front alongside Bowery.
The Red Devils, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. Crawley Town do not seem to be at their sharpest ahead of the trip to Masnfield; therefore, we are tempted to put our money on the Yellows. In their last meeting in the League Two Crawley defeated Mansfield 1-0 thanks to Lubala’s goal in the 53rd minute, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
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.
Highlighted Team (Crawley):
Crawley Town are an English football club that compete in the League 2. The club was founded back in 1896 and in the 2011/2012 season they secured promotion to the English fourth tier for the first time. The Devils play their home games at Broadfield Stadium, the venue which was built and opened in 1997.
The stadium has a capacity of 6,144 spectators and is owned by Crawley Borough Council. Crawley Town are well known for their red home kit, with the team wearing white shirts and sky blue shorts when playing on the travels. Crawley Town fans consider AFC Wimbledon the club’s biggest rivals, but they have rivalries with Brighton and Swindon Town as well.
In 1959 the Devils won the Metropolitan League Cup, which is considered one of the club’s biggest successes. Crawley Town won the Sussex Professional Cup in 1970, the Gilbert Rice Floodlight Cup in 1980 and 1984, the Southern Counties Combination Floodlight Cup in 1986, and the Sussex Senior Cup in 1990 and 1991.
