Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town will be looking to make amends for a 1-0 loss to Grimsby Town when they welcome Forest Green Rovers at their One Call Stadium on Matchday 27. The Yellows aim to climb to the top half of the standings, but they face an uphill task in Saturday’s football match against the promotion-chasing team. The Green Army do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the trip to Nottinghamshire, but this match could be the turning point for Mark Cooper’s troops.
Considering that Mansfield Town are on a six-game winless run at home in the League Two, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. The two teams played out a 2-2 draw at the New Lawn in the first half of the season, but away win should be considered this time out as Mansfield Town just can’t find their best form.
Highlighted Player (Bobby Olejnik):
Born in Vienna, Austria on November 26, 1986, Bobby Olejnik is a goalkeeper who plays for League Two side Mansfield Town. Olejnik started his youth career at Austria Wien, but in 2003 he moved to Aston Villa. Despite signing a professional contract with the Villans, he did not see any game action for the Villans at senior level.
The 188-cm tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Lincoln City (loan), Falkirk, Torquay United, Peterborough United, Scunthorpe United (loan), York City (loan), and Exeter City before joining Mansfield Town. Bobby Olejnik made his League Two debut with the Yellows on December 30, 2017, in a 2-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers.
Olejnik has 13 caps with the Austria U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. Olejnik’s preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 12 jersey at Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Forest Green):
Forest Green are an English club which was founded back in 1889. The Rovers host fellow League Two teams at the New Lawn, the stadium with the capacity of 5,302. Forest Green played their first home league game on October 6, 1889, with the team sharing the spoils with Brimscombe.
