Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Mansfield Town will be aiming to put an end to their three-game winless run in the League Two when they host Southend United at their Field Mill. The Yellows just can’t find their best form in the first half of the season, but they will not have a better chance than this to return to winning ways. Mansfield Town have recorded no more than two wins in the new League Two campaign, but keep in mind that they have drawn no less than ten games to date.
Both Cook and Sinclair could be recalled to the starting XI for the hosts. The Seasiders, on the other hand, have been showing signs of improvement of late, with the team recording back-to-back wins over Scunthorpe and Grimsby, while sharing the spoils with Stevenage. Southend United, though, are still stuck at the bottom of the table, and seeing that the Yellows are desperate to return to winning ways, home win should be considered.
