Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Following a 1-0 win at Stevenage, Mansfield Town will be aiming to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they take on Scunthorpe United on Matchday 43. The Yellows did well to secure the League Two survival, but, no doubt, their pride will be at stake in the remainder of the season. You should bear in mind, though, that Mansfield Town failed to win the previous five home games in the English fourth tier.
The Iron, on the other hand, experienced all sorts of problems at the back in back-to-back losses to Forest Green and Morecambe, and given their three-game losing run on the road, we do not believe that the visitors are capable of spoiling Mansfield’s party at Field Mill. When the two teams met at Sands Venue Stadium Mansfield Town recorded a 3-2 win over Scunthorpe United.
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 (Scunthorpe):
Founded back in 1899, Scunthorpe United are a professional football club that compete in League Two. The Iron wear sky blue and claret jerseys and claret shorts when playing on home soil, while green is the dominant colour of their away kit.
Scunthorpe United welcome their rivals at the Sands Venue Stadium, which can hold up to 9,088 people. The Iron recorded their biggest triumph (8-1) against Luton Town on April 24, 1965, with the team repeating the success 30 years later when they hammered Torquey United 8-1 in the New Division 3. As for the club’s biggest loss, the Iron were crushed by Carlisle United 8-0 on November 25, 1952.
Grimsby Town are seen as the club’s fiercest rivals, but they maintain rivalries with local clubs Hull City, Doncaster Rovers, and Lincoln City as well. Jack Brownsword (1947-65) holds the record for most appearances in Scunthorpe United shirt (783).
