Forest Green vs Mansfield Prediction
The Green Devils will be trying to replicate their away form at home, which would in reverse for most of the teams. They cannot go through another stretch like that of November, where the home-fans were fed up with their team’s performance. First and foremost objective of this tie, against a top-team, would be to avoid the loss.
The Stags have set themselves a target to compete on top of their defensive rigidity which has kept them in the title equation this far. They have conceded a meager 22 goals from their 29 matches in the league so far. Also, they are the only team that has let past just one goal into their nets, for every two goals they have scored.
We are set for a ferocious tie where either squad will not be ready to give an inch to the other. Expect a goalless first half by all accounts.
