Jon Brady’s Northampton Town and Nigel Clough’s Mansfield Town meet at Sixfields Stadium on Wednesday for the second leg of their EFL League Two play-off semi-final. There was hardly anything to split these two after 46 league games, with the Cobblers finishing just three points ahead in the regular season. The first leg was also tight, with the Stags picking up a narrow 2-1 home win. Who will go through to contest this season’s League Two play-off final? Take a look at the latest odds and tips.

Northampton Town Preview – Can the Cobblers turn things around?

Northampton Town have had a great season under Jon Brady, especially after suffering a disappointing relegation from EFL League One last term. The Cobblers finished fourth in the regular campaign and missed out on automatic promotion on goals scored.

Northampton ended the season in fine fettle, winning four and drawing two of the last six. They have been strong at home, losing just one fixture at Sixfields since 1st February.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score in second half

Bet at 22Bet


(odds taken 1420 GMT, Tuesday 17 May)

Northampton may be trailing in the tie, but Brady and his side will back themselves to turn things around on their own patch. The bookies are offering 11/8 for the hosts to win in the 90.

Mansfield Town Preview – Will the Stags see the job through?

Nigel Clough’s Mansfield Town snuck into the play-offs, taking seventh spot with 77 points to their name. Overall, the Stags, who finished down in 16th last term, picked up 22 wins, suffered 13 defeats and drew 11 times.

Mansfield ended their campaign on a four-game unbeaten run, sealing two wins and drawing twice. They have been indifferent away from home of late, though, winning one, drawing two and losing two of the past five.

Mansfield may have the advantage, but Sixfields is an extremely tough place to visit. The Yellows are the 21/10 second favourites to win the second leg but are odds-on to progress.


Northampton Town vs Mansfield Town Betting Advice

Back in October, goals from Aaron McGowan and Fraser Horsfall earned Northampton a 2-0 home win over Mansfield. However, the Yellows got revenge in the home fixture, with Oli Hawkins scoring in a 1-0 victory.

The first leg of this play-off tie was a tight and tense affair, with Mansfield nicking another narrow win. Efforts from Rhys Oates and Jordan Bowery gave the Stags a 2-0 half-time lead, with Ali Koiki pulling one back for the Cobblers in the 61st minute.


Key Facts – Northampton Town vs Mansfield Town Betting Tip

  • Mansfield have beaten Northampton twice in six weeks
  • Both teams won the home meetings this season
  • The Stags hold a one-goal advantage in the tie


Northampton’s last two defeats have been to Mansfield, and we fancy Clough’s boys to get the job done in style with a win at Sixfields on Wednesday. The away victory is nicely priced at 21/10.

The hosts will not go down without a fight, and they should find the net on their own patch. With that in mind, put some money on the away win and both teams to score at the top odds of 6/1.
