Tip Reasoning

  • Mansfield have won 13 of their last 14 home league games
  • Forest Green have only won one in nine on the road
  • Rovers have managed just one away victory against teams in the top half

Mansfield poised for promotion?

The League Two promotion race is utterly absorbing, with Mansfield going into the final weekend of the campaign knowing they can finish as high as third or as low as eighth.

Nigel Clough’s side are inside the play-off places currently, but only one point behind Northampton and Bristol Rovers who sit third and fourth, so it is all to play for as they seek and 14th home win in 15 attempts.

The likes of Tranmere, Salford and Exeter, all in the top half of the table, have left Field Mill empty handed during that run, while they are unbeaten there since October.

Forest Green under-delivering on the road

Forest Green should have had the League Two title wrapped up some time ago, but despite securing promotion, they have dropped to second place behind Exeter, who host Port Vale this weekend.

Rob Edwards’ side can blame their away form if they fail to be crowned champions, as they have picked up just one win in nine on the road since January, and even that was against lowly Colchester.

Rovers, defeated at home by Harrogate last weekend, have lost to Swindon and Crawley during that period, while their only victory in ten fixtures on their travels against teams in the top half came against Tranmere.

I think Mansfield will win this game as they desperately hunt for third spot in the table, with 2-1 my correct score prediction.
