Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield welcome Hartlepool at Field Mill in the League Two round 23. The Yellows are brimming with confidence ahead of Boxing Day as they won each of their last three league fixtures, and it is no surprise the bookies see them as favourites to win the match. Rhys Oates should continue to lead the line for the hosts after finding the net in the 2-1 win over Salford City.
Hartlepool, on the other hand, played out a goalless draw with Scunthorpe in their last league match. The Pools aim to keep their playoffs hopes alive, but given Mansfield’s signs of improvement, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the Yellows. In their last meeting in the League Two Mansfield rolled over 4-0, and we predict that the history is going to repeat itself in Sunday’s festive fixture.
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.
