          Mansfield Town vs Swindon Town Predictions, Tips & Stats

          A fascinating encounter awaits at One Call Stadium this Saturday, as league leaders Mansfield Town welcome struggling Swindon Town in a League Two clash.

          Despite sitting comfortably at the top of the table, Mansfield suffered a surprising 2-1 defeat to fellow promotion challengers MK Dons in their last outing. The Dons fought back from conceding an early goal to secure a vital three points. Theo Corbeanu and Matthew Dennis scored for the Dons after Lucas Akins' opener for Mansfield.

          This rare slip-up, their fifth league defeat of the season, will serve as a reminder to the Stags of the competitive nature of the league. However, manager Nigel Clough will be confident his team can bounce back, having lost only twice at home all season.

          Swindon Town, currently sitting comfortably in 17th place, 17 points clear of the relegation zone, are aiming to build consistency after a string of inconsistent performances.

          In their most recent game, Swindon recorded a 1-1 draw against Harrogate Town. Anthony O'Connor put Harrogate ahead in the 52nd minute, but Swindon's Charlie Austin equalised in the 85th minute.

          Despite flashes of attacking talent, a lack of defensive stability, conceding 63 goals, the third-worst record in the league, has hampered their progress.

          The fixture of Swindon vs Mansfield has a long and storied history, with the two slides having first met in 1931 in the Division Three (south). In total, the two sides have met each other on 52 occasions, with Swindon having teh much better head to head record.

          The Robins have won 25 of the meetings compared to just 12 which have been won by Mansfield. It was Swindon who recorded a narrow 2-1 victory when these sides met each other earlier on in the campaign.

          The Stags, boasting an unbeaten league run at the time, were stunned by Swindon's attacking prowess. Luke Jephcott and Harry McKirdy found the net for the Robins, while Mansfield could only manage a consolation goal.

          Unsurprisingly, considering the respective league positions of these two sides heading into this weekend’s match, it is Mansfield who are heavily favoured and are currently priced @ ½, whilst an away win for Swindon is priced @ 9/2 and a draw is @ 10/3.

          We are backing Mansfield to win and over 3.5 goals because this has been a very high scoring fixture in recent years. In the last four meetings between the two sides, there have been 21 goals scored, an average of 5.25 goals per game.

          Mansfield also have the best goalscoring record in the league, having netted 69 goals in their 35 league games this season. Overall, we expect this to be a high scoring game, with Mansfield the likely side to come out on top.

          Mansfield Town Team news

          Mansfield have not reported any new injury concerns ahead of this weekend’s game however Nigel Clough may make some changes to the side that were beaten by MK Dons last time out. Hiram Boateng and KD Davis will both be pushing for a place in the starting XI.

          Swindon Town Team News
