Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Carlisle United will be aiming to extend their winning run in League Two to four games when they host Mansfield Town at their Brunton Park on Matchday 18. The Cumbrians have been climbing the standings week by week, and a win over Mansfield Town will see them retain their spot in top three. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be talented midfielder Jon Mellish, who has netted seven goals in the English fourth tier so far this season.
The Yellows, on the other hand, are only three points clear of the relegation zone, meaning that Tuesday’s clash is of big importance for them. Mansfield are undefeated in the previous three league fixtures, but given Carlisle United’s form in December, home win should definitely be considered. Experienced attacker scored the equalizer from the penalty spot against Grimsby, but that should not help him return to the starting XI.
