Sky Bet's take on our chances at Newport County this weekend.
Just two away teams won last weekend with seven home teams securing victories.
We are set for another action packed weekend in Sky Bet League Two. Read on for Sky Bet’s, take on Mansfield’s chances this weekend.
Stags aiming for five unbeaten in unchartered waters
Mansfield supporters will be delighted with the reaction to losing their season-opener at Scunthorpe United. They’re now undefeated in four, with two wins and three clean sheets. The Stags claimed their first home victory of the season after beating Dagenham & Redbridge 3-0 at One Call Stadium last weekend.
While their defence looks strong, it’s a bit worrying that they’ve netted only six times in their five outings. Paul Cox doesn’t look to be sure of his first-choice attacking force yet, but as long as Mansfield can keep stopping their opponents netting there won’t be many complaints.
Only leaders Chesterfield have conceded fewer than Mansfield’s four this term and as a result three of their five have had under 2.5 goals. Furthermore, their opponents, fellow new boys Newport County, have also had under 2.5 goals on three occasions and we could see another tight affair here.
Under 2.5 goals is 8/11 and it could be worth getting involved with the 9/1 being offered on a 0-0 at full-time.
Other reasons to bet:
• Mansfield have scored first in their last three matches
• Mansfield have had more goals in the second half in two of their last three matches
• Newport have had under 2.5 goals in their last three matches
