Mansfield vs Grimsby Match Analysis & Prediction
17/12/2022 6:00 pm
Playoff hopefuls Mansfield will look to remain in the top-six berth when they welcome Grimsby to Field Mill for their League Two Matchday 22 fixture on Saturday evening.
Mansfield have made an impressive campaign in League Two so far this season, with the side managing to claim 34 points from 21 fixtures to sit fifth in the league standings, two points above eighth placed Swindon.
They are coming off a 0-0 draw with second-placed Stevenage in their previous league fixture and prior to that they were off a 2-1 win over Colchester. Nigel Clough’s side should therefore be confident heading into the fixture as they look to bounce back and keep themselves in the playoff battle.
Meanwhile Grimsby have made inconsistent campaign so far in League Two this season and have only managed 27 points from 20 games. They sit around mid-table in the bottom half, three points behind 12th-placed Wimbledon and five outside the playoffs.
They are coming off a confidence-boosting 2-1 win over Tranmere, which ended their six-match winless run in League Two. They will be keen to build on the victory as they seek to climb into the top-half and closer to the playoff berth.
They won the last fixture against Mansfield, but with the hosts form, Grimsby should bring more than their top game in this clash to walk away with something.
