Mansfield Town vs Accrington Stanley

, KO: 19:45 Apr 16, 2024, One Call Stadium
Accrington Stanley

Mansfield Town are inching closer to automatic promotion as they host Accrington Stanley in a League Two fixture on Tuesday. Mansfield have shown some good form lately and should have the upper hand over their visitors, who have found things difficult lately.

Mansfield Town were in rampant mood last time out in League One as they ran out 4-1 winners at MK Dons. Davis Keillor-Dunn netted a brace while Elliott Hewitt and James Gale were also on target.

That was the second straight win for Mansfield Town and also signals a proper return to form after struggling slightly in recent weeks. They remain in the hunt for automatic promotion, sitting third on the standings, five points clear of MK Dons.

With two more home matches left to play, Mansfield Town will be keen to make it count in front of their fans. Nigel Clough’s men have won five of their last eight matches at One Call Stadium but have kept just two clean sheets in that run.

Accrington Stanley appear to be at that stage of the season where their campaign is effectively over as they have little to play for. They are well clear of the relegation zone but in contention for nothing further up the table.

That mood is reflected in their recent results as they have claimed just two wins from their last 12 League Two matches. Doolan’s men travel to One Call Stadium off the back of a 4-0 defeat at Doncaster Rovers in their previous League Two fixture.

That defeat at Doncaster Rovers highlights a poor record on their travels for Accrington Stanley, who have lost four of their last six away matches. Some of their heaviest defeats have come on the road with another 4-0 defeat to Wrexham among their recent results.

How the bookies view it

Mansfield Town have been installed as overwhelming favourites with a home win priced at 1/3 by Coral. A victory for Accrington Stanley is valued at 17/2 by William Hill while Coral is also offering odds of 19/4 for a draw.

Head to head

Accrington Stanley have a 10-3 advantage with four draws from 17 previous matches against Mansfield Town. However, Mansfield have won the last two meetings and claimed a 3-0 victory in the reverse fixture back in September.

Players to watch

Davis Keillor-Dunn has 21 League Two goals this season and will be the one to watch for Mansfield Town. Lucas Akins and George Maris also have a combined 21 goals and all three men can ensure the hosts produce over 1.5 goals at 1/3 with Betfred.

Jack Nolan often carries the attacking threat for Accrington Stanley and has scored 14 League One goals this season. The attacker should have support from Shaun Whalley and both men can combine for over 0.5 goals at 6/10 with William Hill.

Anything else catch the eye?
