Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Tuesday’s football game at Bescot Stadium pits together Walsall and Mansfield Town, the two mid-table sides. Walsall desperately needed a win against Port Vale, and they managed to get one. The Robins are seven points behind the playoffs berth, meaning that the midweek clash is of big importance for the home side. A man to watch in the home team will be Adebayo, who continues to impress in the League Two in 2021.
The Yellows, on the other hand, seem to be at their sharpest at the moment, with the team eyeing their sixth consecutive win in the English fourth tier. Since Mansfield Town are likely to stick to their attacking style of play, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. In their last meeting in the League Two Mansfield Town and Walsall played out a 1-1 draw.
