Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Scunthorpe United and Carlisle United, Plymouth Argyle will be aiming to climb to the top three in the League Two standings when they host Mansfield Town at their Home Park. Plymouth were beaten by league leaders Swindon Town in their last home game, but you should bear in mind that they recorded five wins in the last six home matches in the English fourth tier.
A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Luke Jephcott, who has been scoring goals for fun ever since he joined the Home Park outfit. Mansfield Town, on the other hand, have been struggling at the back of late. Considering that the Yellows suffered back-to-back losses to the likes of Grimsby Town and Forest Green in the last two league fixtures, it is no surprise they are seen as underdogs in Saturday’s showdown.
