Tip Reasoning

  • Forest Green are unbeaten in seven in all competitions, and in nine League Two outings.
  • The league leaders have scored 16 goals in their last five league games. They average over two goals per game in League Two this campaign.
  • Although Mansfield have won six of their last seven League Two matches, and nine of ten in all competitions, they’ve won just two away games all season.

Forest Green looking good for promotion, Mansfield in-form

Despite a bizarre 5-5 draw at Oldham last time out, League Two leaders Forest Green have a healthy 10-point cushion in the automatic promotion spots, whilst their record of 43 goals scored is by far the most impressive in the division. They’ve won their last three home league matches, and scored two or more goals in each of their last five games.

Mansfield have followed up a horrendous run of 12 league games without a win, with an impressive sequence of six wins in seven, putting Nigel Clough’s side in the top half. They edged out Salford 2-1 last week, and have now won nine of their last ten games in all competitions.

However, the Stags’ record of just two wins on the road this term gives them the worst travelling record amongst teams in the top half. Furthermore, their run of six wins in seven league games has coincided with a kind fixture list; besides playoff contenders Tranmere, Mansfield’s recent wins have come against the teams sat in 16th, 17th, 21st, 22nd, and 24th.

Hosts to continue promotion push in entertaining fashion?

Despite Mansfield’s strong form, their poor away record, coupled with Forest Green having won their last three at the New Lawn, means the hosts will be confident of continuing their unbeaten run.

However, with four of Mansfield’s last six league outings featuring over 2.5 match goals, and a remarkable 23 goals being scored across Forest Green’s last five, a home win with over 2.5 match goals could be a good way of securing value for this match. A 3-1 win for the free-scoring table-toppers, meanwhile, could be a strong correct score prediction.
