Mansfield Town vs. Forest Green Rovers Match Analysis and Prediction

Forest Green Rovers will be hoping to place more pressure on the top two in League Two when they take a trip to struggling Mansfield Town on Tuesday evening. The match schedules for Tuesday at One Call Stadium, with kickoff at 9 pm.

The hosts are currently struggling in 16th place with 42 points after 36 matches, while Forest Green takes up the third spot and could move level on points with Cambridge United should they pick up a win.

The visit to Grimsby Town was seen as a major chance for Mansfield to overcome their league troubles. However, things changed when the side conceded twice. It forced a comeback that ended with a 2-2 draw.

In their last outing, both George Maris and Jason Law found the back of the net, but Nigel Clough’s men allowed Lenell John-Lewis to head home. However, George Williams came off the bench to rescue a point in the game’s dying minutes.

On the other hand, Forest Green’s chances for automatic promotion remain fully open, especially after a 1-0 defeat by Cambridge. The Green Rovers have taken seven points from their previous three matches.

The side remains three points behind Cambridge but follows closely with Tranmere Rovers tied with points but only separated with a goal difference but with two games in hand.
