League Two side Mansfield will look to eliminate a team from a higher tier in this EFL Cup tie on Tuesday night.

Mansfield Preview – Can Stags get the edge?

League Two side Mansfield have had mixed results at the start of the new season.

They opened their campaign with a loss at Salford.

But the Stags then came up with a response with a 1-0 win over Tranmere on the weekend.

In the match outright, Mansfield are slight underdogs.

Mansfield crashed out in the first round of the EFL Cup last season.

That was a 3-0 loss against Championship side Preston.

The Stags were also eliminated from the FA Cup at home, beaten by another Championship side Middlesbrough.

But they look as if they may cause Derby a problem or two on Tuesday.

On the surface of it, it looks like a tie that may struggle for goals.

Both Teams To Score No for EFL Cup betting is at 23/20* (odds recorded 23:39 GMT August 7th, 2022 at Betfair).


Derby Preview – Can Rams survive at Field Mill?

Derby slipped from the Championship last season and so are adapting to life in League One.

It has not gone smoothly as they are W1 L1 so far.

Their season started with a 1-0 home success over Oxford.

Derby then lost away at Charlton last weekend in their first road trip of the campaign.

That was a 1-0 loss, so again, goals may be at a premium in this one.

Under 1.5 goals is at 12/5* (odds recorded 23:39 GMT August 7th, 2022 at Betfair).

The Rams do go to Field Miss as the narrow favourites in the match outright.

They then went on the road to Sheffield United and suffered a loss.

Derby’s away form last season was just miserable.

Towards the end of the season, they lost ten road matches on the spin in all competitions.

Granted most of that was in the Championship.
