Mansfield vs Lincoln Match Preview
Mansfield Town host League Two pace-setters Lincoln City for their Matchday 38 clash looking to close the gap to the pace-setters, after dropping ten points behind with underwhelming results at bottom-of-the-table rivals Port Vale (2-1) and Crawley Town (0-0).
Stags have been more convincing in front of the home fans and still search for their sixth consecutive win at One Call Stadium, where they beat Crawley Town (1-0), Tranmere Rovers (3-0), Macclesfield Town (3-1), Forest Green Rovers (1-0), and Cheltenham (4-2) since mid-January.
Lincoln have been in a better place lately and consequently extended the gap behind them, where they bagged four wins and a draw in last five outings – including important home points against Yeovil Town (1-0) and Oldham Athletic (2-0) where Danny Cowley set up a tough defensive line and secured the points with just three goals scored.
Red Imps have had more troubles turning clashes their way on the road and while they have regained some consistency lately, we feel this could show in Nottinghamshire on the day. They’ve been conceding goals on the regular and this could prove costly, as we don’t see them building on their tally here.
We will thus go for a Home win here and back Mansfield to close the gap with another confident display in front of the home crowd, which comes at 11/8 with William Hill and has caught the eye of many in the know.
We do expect a thriller contest worthy of a top 3 derby, as Lincoln do their bit to make it happen. With that in mind, we’re now also going for a high-scoring contest on Monday and Over 2.5 Goals FT, which comes at 7/8 with bet365 and looks great value seeing both sides have been scoring (and conceding) goals on the regular.
