Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Newport County take on Mansfield Town at Rodney Parade in what is expected to be a close game. The Exiles have been producing scintillating displays in all competitions this season, and a win over Mansfield could see them climb to the top position in the League Two table. In their first home game of the season Newport defeated Barrow 2-1. A man to keep an eye on in the home team will be in-form attacker Tristan Abrahams, who has been impressive in front of goal of late.
The Yellows, on the other hand, have yet to record a win in the 2020/21 League One campaign. Mansfield are eager to spoil Newport’s party at Rodney Parade, but given the Exiles’ current form, we believe that home win should be considered. In their last encounter in the English fourth tier Mansfield recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Newport, meaning that the hosts are hungry for revenge.
