Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town and Salford City go head to head at Field Mill on day 21 of the new League Two campaign. Mansfield desperately needed a win against Scunthorpe United, and they managed to get one, with the team putting an end to their four-match winless run in the English fourth tier. The Yellows are eager to make amends for their slow start to the season, but they will have a much-bigger fish to fry against Salford City.
The Lions, on the other hand, are eyeing promotion to the League One, and they are likely to go for a win in the midweek clash. Considering that Mansfield Town have been showing signs of improvement of late, we are positive that both teams are going to find the net in the Field Mill showdown. Salford midfielder Luke Burgess is pushing for a start after finding the net in the 2-0 win over Walsall.
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 (Salford):
Founded during the Second World War (1940) as Salford Central, the League Two side play their home games at Moor Lane. The stadium, which was opened in 1978 and renovated in 2019, can hold up to 5,108 spectators. The Lions wear red jerseys and white shorts when playing in front of home fans, while white and black are the dominant colours of their away kit.
Salford City secured promotion to the League 2 at the end of the 2018/19 as they defeated Flyde 3-0 in the National League play-offs final. The match was played at Wembley Stadium, with Touray, Pergianni, and Dieseruvwe scoring for the Lions.
In the 1977/78 season Salford City won their first Manchester Premier Cup trophy, with the team repeating the success the following year. Bury are seen as the club’s main rivals, but their rivalry with the likes of Oldham and Rochdale is pretty big as well.
