Our prediction for this League 2 match:
County Ground will host Saturday’s football game between Swindon Town and Mansfield Town, the two top-table sides. The Robins are five points behind the playoffs berth and their current form is not giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Mansfield. It has to be noted that Swindon have collected only one point in total from the last five league matches. There are no fresh injury worries in the home team.
The Yellows, on the other hand, are on a five-game winning run in the League Two. Mansfield have already suffered elimination in the FA Cup, meaning that they will be fully focused on the league fixtures in the remainder of the season. Given Swindon’s poor form, we predict that the promotion-chasing visitors are going to pick up all three points from Saturday’s encounter. Both Bowery and Lewis return to Mansfield’s starting XI after the duo was rested in the EFL Trophy defeat to Burton.
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 (Swindon):
Founded by Reverend William Pitt of Liddington in 1879, Swindon Town are an English football club which compete in the League Two. The Robins welcome their rivals at County Ground, the stadium which can hold up to 15,728 spectators (all-seated), with the team wearing red shirts and white shorts when playing at home.
Gray is the dominant colour of the club which turned professional in 1894. Oxford United are considered the team’s main rivals, but the Robins have rivalries with Bristol City, Bristol Rovers, and Reading as well. In 1969 Swindon Town did remarkably well to win the English League Cup, with the team beating Arsenal 3-1 in the title game at Wembley Stadium.
John Trollope is the club’s player with most appearances as he played 889 first-team games from 1960 to 1980. Premier League attacker Charlie Austin is one of the most notable footballers who played for Swindon Town in the past.
