Our prediction for this League 2 match:
One Call Stadium will host Saturday’s football match between Mansfield Town and Swindon Town, the two teams who sit in the opposite halves of the table. Mansfield Town are only five points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that they are eager to grab something from the match against the league leaders. The Yellows, though, do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment, and we do not believe that they are capable of claiming a major scalp on Matchday 36.
Thanks to a 3-1 win over Grimsby Town the Robins cemented top position in the standings, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Jerry Yates, who scored his 13th goal of the season at the weekend, will be the man to watch in the away team, and he is likely to help the league leaders pick up all three points from the game.
Highlighted Player (Bobby Olejnik):
Born in Vienna, Austria on November 26, 1986, Bobby Olejnik is a goalkeeper who plays for League Two side Mansfield Town. Olejnik started his youth career at Austria Wien, but in 2003 he moved to Aston Villa. Despite signing a professional contract with the Villans, he did not see any game action for the Villans at senior level.
The 188-cm tall shot-stopper played for the likes of Lincoln City (loan), Falkirk, Torquay United, Peterborough United, Scunthorpe United (loan), York City (loan), and Exeter City before joining Mansfield Town. Bobby Olejnik made his League Two debut with the Yellows on December 30, 2017, in a 2-1 win over Wycombe Wanderers.
Olejnik has 13 caps with the Austria U21 team, but he has yet to earn a call-up for the senior team. Olejnik’s preferred foot is right, and he wears the number 12 jersey at Mansfield Town.
Highlighted Team (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
