Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town will be aiming to build on back-to-back wins over Notts County and Forest Green when they take on Harrogate in the League Two round 33. The Yellows rolled over the Green Army 4-0 at the weekend and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Sulphurites. As there are no fresh injury worries in the home team, Nigel Clough is unlikely to make changes to the team that crushed Forest Green.
Harrogate, on the other hand, aim to build on a hard-fought 1-0 win over Colchester United, but given Mansfield’s excellent display in the last league match, we predict that the visitors are going to return home with their hands empty. Earlier in the process Mansfield outplayed Harrogate 4-1, which is yet another reason why we are going to put our money on the promotion hopefuls.
