      Tip Reasoning

      Mansfield Town sit fifth in the League Two table on thirty-eight points, but have played two fewer games than two of the sides above them, including Wednesday’s guests Bury. The visitors have one more point on the board and sit one place above Mansfield in fourth, and a victory for either side on Wednesday could see them move into the top three.

      Mansfield Town picked up three points at the weekend as they ran out 3-1 winners at Stevenage. Chances were few and far between, especially during the first half, but the hosts did manage to take the lead in stoppage time at the end of the first forty-five through Newton. Mansfield responded well in the second half and were level in the fifty-fifth minute through Sweeney, and in the seventy-seventh minute took the lead when Walker converted after good work from Rose. Walker scored again four minutes from time to end any hopes of even a point for Stevenage, taking the forward in to double figures for the season.

      Bury also claimed three points at the weekend, and like the Mansfield game there weren’t many shots on target during the ninety minutes. The teams went in goalless at the break thanks to a good defensive performance from Tranmere Rovers and some poor finishing from both sides. Maynard put Bury in front in the fifty-second minute with what looked like being the only goal of the game. However, in stoppage time Lavery netted a second for the hosts to make it 2-0 and Sutton pulled a goal back for Tranmere with virtually the last kick of the game to make the final scoreline 2-1.

      Mansfield Town and Bury met earlier this month in the EFL Trophy, where the visitors Bury extended their eleven game unbeaten run against Mansfield and progressed through to the 3rd Round via a narrow 1-0 win. Telford scored the winning goal in the thirty-fifth minute, and despite having defender Dawson sent-off five minutes from time it was Bury who had the final big chance of the match in the form of an eighty-seventh minute penalty which substitute Lavery. However, the ten-men had done enough to earn their win and the missed spot kick and red card had little, if any, effect on the final moments of the tie.

      With four wins and two defeats from the last six matches its Bury who head into Wednesday’s game as the form favourites, ahead of a Mansfield side that have picked up three wins, one draw, and two defeats during that period. There isn’t much between the teams in the form guide or the league table and were expecting another close game between the pair on Wednesday. Walker top scores in the league for Mansfield with ten goals to his name, while Maynard leads the way for Bury on nine League Two goals.

      We’re confident that Bury will continue their unbeaten run against Mansfield and have backed the visitors with a double chance bet, and for the game to end in a 1-1 draw. Bury are unbeaten in their last eleven matches against Mansfield Town, and have only lost one of their last four away games. Mansfield Town have lost two and drawn one of their last five games in all competitions, with one of those losses coming against Bury in the EFL Trophy earlier this month.
