Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Sixfields Stadium pits together Northampton Town and Mansfield Town, the two top-table sides. Northampton are eager to climb to automatic promotion berth, but this match will be anything but a walk in the park for the home side. Joshua Eppiah suffered a knee injury in a draw with Hartlepool, with Max Dyche likely to step up. There are no other fresh selection worries in the home team, but Aaron McGowan is banned for the match.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over AFC Wimbledon. Mansfield Town are eyeing their fourth consecutive win on the road and given their attacking potential, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Lucas Akins is likely to replace Callum Johnson in the starting XI as the 27-year-old right back limped off with injury at the weekend.
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 (Northampton):
Northampton are a professional football club that compete in the League Two, the English fourth tier. The Cobblers play their home matches at Sixfields Stadium, the venue that has a capacity of 7,798. Northampton Town are well known for their claret and white home kit, while black is the dominant colour of their away jersey.
Northampton did well to make it to the Charity Shield final in 1909, with the team suffering a 2-0 loss to Newcastle United in the title game. The Cobblers are holding the record for the shortest time taken to secure promotion from the bottom tier to the top flight and relegated back down to the bottom again. Northampton Town managed to do so in only nine years.
Peterborough united are regarded as the club’s main rivals, with other significant rivalries including the likes of Oxford United, Milton Keynes Dons, Cambridge United, Coventry City, and Rushden & Diamonds.
