Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Saturday’s football game at Field Mill pits together Mansfield Town and Tranmere Rovers, the two teams with entirely different ambitions in the 2021/2022 League Two season. The Yellows aim to secure the League Two survival, while the Super Whites are eyeing promotion to the League One. Mansfield Town suffered a 2-1 loss at Exeter on Matchday 14, with the team extending their winless run to 12 games.
The Yellows are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Tranmere; therefore, we do not believe that home win should be considered. The Rovers aim to bounce back from a 2-0 loss to Northampton, and they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. As always, a man to watch in the away team will be former Liverpool midfielder Jay Spearing, who is enjoying a very successful season.
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 (Tranmere):
Based in Birkenhead, Merseyside, Tranmere Rovers are a professional club that compete in the League One. Tranmere were founded back in 1884 under the name of Belmont FC, with the football arms of cricket clubs Lyndhurst Wanderers and Belmont coming together. The club recorded their first win later in 1884 as they outclassed Brunswick Rovers 4-0.
Nowadays Tranmere Rovers play their home games at Prenton Park, the venue which can hold up to 15,567 people. The Rovers wear white shirts and blue shorts in home matches, but back in the 19th century orange and red were the dominating colours on their kit.
Tranmere fans see Bolton Wanderers as the club’s main rivals, but they have built a small rivalry with Chester City and Everton as well. The Prenton Park outfit did well to make it to the League Cup final in the 1993/1994 season, but Aston Villa proved to be a big catch for them in the title game.
