Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Sutton will look to recover from a massive 8-0 loss to Stockport County when they take on Mansfield Town in the League Two round 23. Sutton experienced all sorts of problems at the back against the league leaders, but it has to be noted that they are undefeated in the previous five home games in all competitions. Both Milsom and Clay are pushing for a start after the duo came off the bench in the last league fixture.
The Yellows, on the other hand, aim to build on a 3-1 win over Crawley Town and given Sutton’s shaky defence, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the visiting side. With no fresh injury worries to report, Mansfield head coach Nigel Clough is unlikely to make changes to the team that defeated the Red Devils in the last league match.
Highlighted Team (Mansfield):
Founded in 1897, Mansfield Town are a professional club that compete in the League 2, the English fourth tier. The Stags are well known for their yellow shirts and blue shorts, while the colour of their away kit is black. Field Mill is the club’s home ground, the stadium with the capacity of 9,186.
The venue was built back in 1861 and renovated in 1999. Chesterfield and Notts County are regarded as the club’s fiercest rivals. Mansfield Town did well to win the Football League Trophy in 1986/1987 season, with the team beating Bristol City on penalties at Wembley Stadium.
The two teams played out a 1-1 draw in the regular time, with Kevin Kent and Glyn Riley scoring for Mansfield Town and Bristol City respectively. Goalkeeper Rod Arnold is the player with most appearances as he played 513 games for the Stags in all competitions.
