‘A pivotal game’ – Wrexham vs Mansfield Town prediction: The72

The72’s writers offer their Wrexham vs Mansfield Town prediction ahead of their League Two clash on Friday afternoon.

The72’s writers offer their Wrexham vs Mansfield Town prediction ahead of their League Two clash on Friday afternoon.

Wrexham head into this Good Friday fixture with Mansfield Town off the back of a convincing 3-1 away win against Grimsby Town following a loss and a draw in their previous two outings.

An Andy Cannon brace had the Red Dragons two goals to the good before Paul Mullin extended their lead just before half-time. Arthur Gnahoua scored a late consolation goal for the Mariners, but Phil Parkinson’s men had already done enough to wrap up the three points and ensure they remained 3rd in the table.

Mansfield Town, on the other hand, were held to a disappointing 1-1 draw on home soil against Colchester United in their last encounter.

The Stags initially trailed at Field Mill following Harry Anderson’s 12th-minute effort, but Nigel Clough’s men hit back through Lewis Brunt just after the hour mark to somewhat spare their blushes. They remain top of League Two by two points, although Stockport County below them do boast a game in hand.

Here, a handful of our writers make their predictions for the game…

Jacob Hackett

“This is bound to be a fascinating encounter at the top end of League Two, and one that many eyes will be drawn to between two of the sides currently occupying automatic promotion spots.

“The Racecourse Ground is sure to be rocking this weekend, and home advantage could genuinely play a part here with Wrexham able to draw level on points with their visitors should they win.

“It is certainly a game in which I can see both sides scoring, and it is really tough to try and pick which way this one will go.

“I think a score draw could be likely, so that is going to be my guess on this occasion with little to split between the Red Dragons and Mansfield on paper.”

Who is this?

James Ray

“There’s no hiding that this is a pivotal game. Both of these sides are still firmly in contention for the title but a slip in form at this late stage could have a disastrous outcome as the chasing pack hunt them down.

“The tale for Wrexham has been that they can get the job done at home while struggling on the road. With Mansfield Town coming to visit on Friday though, the hosts will be in for a real tough one.

“The Stags can’t quite get a run going though and if I had to pick a winner, I’d lean towards Wrexham. However, I’ve got a feeling the visitors will nick something. I’ll say this ends level.”
