Tip Reasoning

  • Four of Mansfield’s last five home games have seen under 2.5 goals scored.
  • Under 2.5 goals has landed in each of Salford’s last four games.
  • 12 of Salford’s 19 league games have featured two goals or less.

Clough taking Mansfield to new heights

After overcoming Carlisle last Saturday, Mansfield have now won eight of their last nine games and are flying under Nigel Clough who took the reins back on November 6th. 

He has taken them from the pits of relegation to play-off hopefuls and only league leaders Forest Green have taken more points (13) than Mansfield (12) have from their last five matches. They are up to 11th and now closer to the top seven than the bottom two. Another win could close the five-point gap on the top seven and they are no longer looking over their shoulder, with an 11-point gap to the relegation zone.

Will Salford climb above the hosts?

The visitors narrowly missed out on the play-offs last season and many tipped to them to finish at a similar height this term but under the tutelage of Gary Bowyer, they have slipped to 15th in the table. Although two wins in three matches and a four-game unbeaten run in League Two has seen them climb the table. In fact, a win here would see them climb above Mansfield with just two points between them. 

Their defensive record is better than a number of teams above them but they haven’t exactly been banging them in either. They have scored just nine goals in eight away fixtures and two of them came in their most recent away fixture at Harrogate. Hence our under 2.5 predictions and given how close these two sides are I’m predicting a 1-1 draw.
