Mansfield Town Preview – Stags to make it four wins on the spin?

Mansfield Town have had a poor season so far, but they have certainly shown a big improvement since Nigel Clough inherited the managerial reigns at Field Mill. The Stags have won three league and cup games in a row under their new boss.

Mansfield picked up an impressive 1-0 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the first round of the Emirates FA Cup in Clough’s first match in charge at the beginning of the month. Mansfield followed that up with a 2-1 away win at Scunthorpe United in the Football League Trophy.

Our betting prediction:
Mansfield to win 1-0

The Yellows then made it three away victories on the trot last weekend. Goals from George Lapslie and Harry Charsley proved to be enough for a 2-1 win at Forest Green Rovers in League Two. That was the club’s first league success of the season.

The experienced Clough has made an outstanding start at Field Mill. Can the 54-year-old guide Mansfield to a fourth consecutive league and cup victory on Friday night?

Colchester United Preview – U’s winless run on the road to continue?

Steve Ball’s Colchester United have made a strong start to their 2020-21 League Two campaign. After 11 games played, the Essex outfit are in seventh spot, picking up 19 points from a possible 33.

So far, Colchester have won five, drawn four and lost just two. Only Exeter City have suffered fewer defeats in League Two thus far. The U’s are in fine fettle, winning four of their last five league matches to fire themselves into the play-off positions.

Despite Colchester’s good form, Ball’s boys have yet to win away from home in any competition this season. In fact, they have the worse away record in the division. Can United change that on Friday night?


Mansfield Town vs Colchester United Betting Advice

These two clubs met just once in the shortened 2019-20 League Two season. Nevertheless, it was a cracker at Field Mill, with Colchester leaving with a 3-2 win. Mansfield picked up a 3-2 victory in Essex in the meeting before.


Key Facts – Mansfield Town vs Colchester United Betting Tip

  • Ten goals have been scored in the last two Mansfield vs Colchester meetings
  • United have yet to win on the road this season
  • Clough has won three league and cup fixtures on the spin since taking over at Field Mill


As Mansfield’s form has picked up, while Colchester have won four of their last five in the league, this promises to be an entertaining affair at Field Mill. In truth, it could go either way, but we fancy Clough to make it four wins on the bounce. The home victory is available at 6/5.

Lapslie, who is on loan at Mansfield from Charlton Athletic, has scored three goals in his last three appearances for the Stags. The 23-year-old is priced at 7/1 to score anytime in this one.
