Mansfield impressed in their play-off semi-final against Northampton Town, who ended their campaign in fourth. Rhys Oates and Jordan Bowery were on target in a 2-1 win at Field Mill in leg one. At Sixfields Stadium, Stephen McLaughlin’s first-half goal gave Town a 1-0 win.

(odds taken 1206 GMT, Friday 28 May)

Mansfield are in fine form, winning four and drawing two of their last six matches. Can they go one more step and book their place in next season’s EFL League One?

Port Vale Preview – Will Vale beat the Stags again?

Port Vale finished their season in fifth position. They picked up 22 wins, drew 11 times and lost 13 of their 46 league fixtures. They had a poor end, however, losing the last three.

Darrell Clarke’s troops then lost the first leg of their play-off semi-final to Swindon Town. However, they bounced back with a 1-0 home win to take the tie to extra time then penalties. Vale held their nerve in a thrilling penalty shootout, winning 5-6 to seal their passage through to Wembley.
