Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town will be aiming to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League Two when they host Southend United at their Field Mill. The Yellows just can’t find their best form in the first half of the season, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Mansfield Town have recorded no more than two wins in the new League Two campaign, but keep in mind that they have drawn no less than ten games to date.
Both Cook and Sinclair could be recalled to the starting XI for the hosts. The Seasiders, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Scunthorpe and Grimsby, while sharing the spoils with Stevenage. Southend United, though, are still stuck at the bottom of the table, and seeing that the Yellows are desperate to return to winning ways, home win should be considered.
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.
