Struggling Swindon host a Mansfield team with momentum on their side this weekend. This fixture has witnessed goals galore in the last few meetings and that trend is expected to continue on Saturday.
The Robins are placed in 11th after 17 games so far this season, on 24 points. However, only two of those have been picked up over the last six matches. Swindon have no issues in the final third, scoring just over two per game on average, but they are vulnerable at the back, conceding the fifth highest average per game, 1.78.
Swindon had lost four League Two matches in a row prior to last weekend’s 1-1 draw away to Harrogate Town. Both sides had plenty of room to work with in attack and the game mirrored a tennis match at times.
The Stags are still unbeaten after 17 games in League Two and they boast a current win streak of five. Drawing matches has held them back this campaign, but Nigel Clough has clearly addressed that on the training ground. Mansfield are in second, picking up 35 points, scoring 31 goals and conceding the least in the league, 13.
Last weekend, Mansfield beat Newport 2-0 at home. Davis Keillor-Dunn was the star of the show, scoring twice in a comfortable win.
Swindon are typically strong at home, winning five of their eight matches while hosting, which will give the side confidence. On the other hand, Mansfield are on fire and seem unstoppable.
The final prediction is Swindon 1-2 Mansfield.
