Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield and Harrogate face each other in a highly-anticipated game at Field Mill. Following a 2-1 win at Forest Green, Mansfield share the spoils with Colchester in their last league match, with the team extending their unbeaten run in League Two to four games. The Yellows aim to give fans yet another reason for celebration, and we predict that they will take advantage of Harrogate’s poor form.
The newcomers made a flying start t othe season, but they do not seem to be at the top of their game ahead of the trip to Mansfield. The visitors failed to win the previous five league fixtures, and seeing that they experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 3-0 loss to Leyton Orient, we are tempted to put our money on the hosts. This will be the first meeting between the two teams in the English fourth tier.
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 (Harrogate):
Harrogate Town is an English club that welcomes their rivals at Wetherby Road. Opened on August 28, 1920, the venue can hold up to 5,000 spectators (500 seated). The club was founded back in 1914, with the Sulphurties facing Horsforth in their first competitive match on August 30, 1919.
Harrogate Town footballers wear yellow and black shirts when playing at home, while pink is the dominant colour of their away jersey. The Sulphurties did well to win the Whitworth Cup in the 1919/20 season, while the club’s biggest success in the FA Cup came in the 2012/13 when they made it to the second round.
Simon Weaver is one of the most notable footballers who played for Harrogate Town in the past. The team’s manager for the 2020/21 season played for several English clubs, and he has been very successful in the coaching job as well.
