    Tip Reasoning

    At this stage of the season some of the most exciting contests for a fan to witness is when there is something on the line for both sides despite them being at opposite ends of the table. For promotion hunting Mansfield Town, that is exactly what they have ahead of them this weekend as they face off against a Macclesfield Town side who are fighting for their lives as they bid to avoid an immediate drop back into the National League.

    Mansfield Town kept their place in the automatic promotion spots after a hard-earned midweek point at promotion rivals Forest Green. The Stags took an early lead in that match but were unable to hold on and make it four wins in succession as their hosts hit back to claim a hard earned point. Despite having to settle for a share of the spoils, Mansfield still look in excellent shape and they are now just four points behind league leaders Lincoln City, although they have played a game more.

    Macclesfield Town’s survival bid suffered a setback when they threw away a 2-0 interval lead to go down 3-2 at Cheltenham last weekend. It will have been a bitter pill to swallow for Sol Campbell’s men but after playing around 70 minutes with 10 men, it is not as if there was not a reason for their collapse. The Silkmen have been in impressive form since the appointment of Campbell and even with last weekend’s defeat, they have managed to close the gap to safety to a manageable two points.

    Unfortunately for the visitors, they still have to address an away record which has seen them manage to win just three times in 15 contests on the road. When you also consider they are facing off against a Mansfield side who boast the fourth best home record in the division, then you will see why we think that backing a home win in this contest is the best way to go.
