Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Port Vale and Mansfield Town square off against each other at Vale Park in what is expected to be a close League Two game. Following back-to-back defeats to Barrow and Bradford City, the Valiants suffered a 1-0 loss to Grimsby Town at the weekend. Port Vale aim to finish the season in great manner, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Saturday’s football game.
The Yellows, on the other hand, recorded three wins in the previous four league fixtures, and seeing that they have been impressive in front of goal of late, both teams to score betting option should be considered. Port Vale midfielder Cristian Montano is banned for the match as he was sent off in the defeat to Grimsby. It has to be noted that over 2.5 goals have been netted in each of the previous four meetings between the two teams in the League Two.
