Mansfield Town welcome the visitors Lincoln City in the English League Two – Round 38. The match will be held on Monday, March, 18th, at the Field Mill (Mansfield).
Over the span of more than 50 years, Mansfield Town remain a yo-yo club, fighting between the 3rd and the 4th English divisions. Lincoln City’s latest Championship run goes back to the 1960s. Last campaign, the hosts and the guests shared the 7th and the 8th places in the League Two standings, this time, however, they look to reach the higher division, yet automatically. The struggle for the League Two title might seem won, but 9 rounds before the end of the campaign, Lincoln need to keep their 5-point handicap from Bury. Mansfield yield 10 points to the leaders, but they are more interested in the automatic promotion to the League One. The homeside on the day are 1 point behind Milton Keynes Dons and 5 points off Bury. The victory over Lincoln would ensure their comeback to top-three, therefore, the match concerned presents a central clash between the automatic League One pursuers.

Mansfield’s form in the last two winless fixtures may bring a concern, but this is the end of the season, and tonight they host a crucial encounter. The team’s home form has been consistently outstanding – all 5 recent rounds held at the Field Mill saw them win (by an aggregate scoreline of 12:3). Success over Lincoln would provide a crucial final impetus in the fight for the class promotion. The visitors keep up holding the first place in the league, winning the last 3 meetings in which they allowed only once. Lincoln’s form is confident, but we should mind their weak opponents lately. The fact remains though that Lincoln boast the best away record in the division, while in 5 previous outings, they failed to beat the rivals Bury (3:3) and could not manage the main outsiders Notts County (1:1).
The coming match is expected to turn one of the toppest in the league. This, first of all, relates to the opponents’ attack. Lincoln do not shut out on the road and put pressure on any side; Mansfield are fearless at home. The oldest pitch in the UK, the Field Mill, is among the toughest in the League Two to attain a win. The guests scored in each of 21 fixtures, so, the hosts will hardly keep a clean sheet. We predict a goal-exchange, as 5 of 6 teams’ head-to-heads saw both of them score.
Prediction for the match: Both teams to score.
