Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Northampton Town will be looking to build on a 3-0 win over Grimsby Town when they take on Mansfield Town at their PTS Academy Stadium. The Cobblers quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Cheltenham Town, with the team regaining a much-needed confidence. Seeing that Northampton are eager to keep their promotion hopes alive, we believe that they are going to emerge triumphant in Saturday’s football match against the relegation-threatened Yellows.
Mansfield Town aim to escape the relegation zone in the League Two table, but we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling the Cobblers’ party at PTS Academy Stadium. You should bear in mind that the Yellows suffered four defeats in the previous five away games in the League Two, with the team conceding ten goals in the process. In the first half of the season the two teams shared the spoils at One Call Stadium.
