Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield will be aiming to stay in automatic promotion berth when they take on Sutton in the League Two round 29. The Yellows have suffered only one loss at home this season and it is no surprise they are seen as hot favourites to beat the relegation strugglers at One Call Stadium. Experienced midfielder Stephen McLaughlin is pushing for a start, while there are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Amber and Chocolates, on the other hand, failed to win the previous four games in all competitions. As Sutton have collected only five points in total on the travels this term, anything but a routine home win would be a big surprise. A man to watch in the away team will be Harry Beautyman, who scored a brace in a 2-2 draw with Barrow. In the first half of the season Mansfield defeated Sutton 2-0 and we predict that history is going to repeat itself.
