Mansfield vs Newport
England – League Two Playoff
Date: Sunday, 12th May 2019
Kick-off at 18.00 UK/ 19.00 CET
Venue: Field Mill (Mansfield).
Mansfield almost had the perfect first leg, when these two met just two days back, at Newport’s home. The former found the back of the net in the 12th minute itself, putting the hosts under massive pressure. More than the goal conceded it was the nature of the goal that frightened them more – an away goal before the first 15 minutes of the tie had passed.
The home team tried to come back into the game, and they succeeded in keeping the visiting frontline at bay. Meanwhile, the team also tried to return the goal back. Finally, after what seemed like an eternity, towards the dying stages of the game, the hosts were awarded a penalty. Though the shot was not converted, subsequent effort saw the ball flying into the net.

Mansfield vs Newport Prediction
Mansfield already has an away-goal advantage, and only needs to hold on to it to see them progress. But for sure that won’t be the strategy. Newport will be forced to attack, and find an away goal of their own, and this desperation will be taken advantage of, by the hosts.
Moreover, Mansfield always has had the upper hand in h2h fixtures. They recorded eight of the last ten wins and scored three or more goals in two of the last four such meetings. At this venue, the domination has been even more obvious. The hosts won the last six clashes on the trot and hold a 100% winning record here, in League Two ties.
Importantly, they scored two or more goals in nine of the last ten h2h encounters at this stadium, and three or more goals in seven of the last ten.
Rightfully expect the hosts to have the game under control.
