Mansfield Town Preview – Will the Stags seal first victory in a month?

Mansfield Town have struggled for wins this season, picking up just nine so far. However, only Walsall have drawn more games (19) than the Stags (18). At the time of writing, Mansfield are in 19th position on 45 points.

Town have not tasted victory since a 3-1 home win over Cheltenham Town on 9th March. They impressed in that one, with Jordan Bowery netting a brace. Since then, however, the Yellows have drawn five and lost two of their following seven.

(odds taken 1015 GMT, Thursday 8 April)

Mansfield have struggled for wins since Nigel Clough took over at Field Mill. In fact, the Nottinghamshire club have claimed just two victories since January. Clough’s troops are in no danger of going down, but they will be looking for a strong finish to their season.

Newport County Preview – Can the Exiles secure a crucial away win?

Newport County have had a topsy-turvy season so far. However, with a handful of games to go, the Welsh side are in the top seven. Overall, County have picked up 17 wins, suffered 12 defeats and drawn nine times. They are on 60 points after 38 games played.

Newport went into Easter Monday’s game in poor form, losing three in a row after three successive wins. However, Mike Flynn’s boys picked up a crucial win over fellow promotion hopefuls Bolton Wanderers, with Nicky Maynard netting the only goal of the game at Rodney Parade.
