Mansfield vs Newport Predictions


Mansfield have drawn with four teams in the top nine in their last six matches. Given Newport’s drop in form since December, I think this match will end in another draw. 

  • Mansfield have seen under 2.5 goals in 6 of their last 7 matches (League Two).
  • Mansfield have drawn 5 of their last 6 matches (League Two).
  • Mansfield have drawn 3 of their last 5 matches against Newport (League Two).
  • Newport have failed to score more than 1 goal in their last 4 matches (League Two).

Head to Head


Mansfield have 18-10 advantage against Newport with 8 draws in 36 matches. 

Mansfield Form


Mansfield currently sit 19th in League Two, nine points above the relegation places. Nigel Clough’s side are one of the draw specialists of the league, with only Walsall drawing more games this season. 

Clough’s team have recently drawn with promotion contenders Carlisle, Forest Green, Tranmere, and Exeter, as they are proving difficult to beat. 

Mansfield Injuries & Team News


On-loan midfielder Oliver Sarkic is ruled out until the end of the season with a hamstring injury.

Clough is likely to name an unchanged team from their away 0-0 draw with Exeter.

Newport Form


Newport currently sit seventh in League Two, but after being top of the league at Christmas, Michael Flynn will be disappointed with his sides drop down the table.

Flynn’s side beat playoff rivals Bolton 1-0 on Monday, but that was their first win in 4 matches after losing to Port Vale, Leyton Orient and Barrow. 

Newport have lost their last 2 away matches and have only won 5 of their last 13 in League Two overall.

Newport Injuries & Team News


Left-back Ryan Haynes is likely to miss the match, plus centre-back Priestley Farquharson came off injured during their 1-0 victory over Bolton. 

Striker Nicky Maynard will be ineligible as he is on loan from Mansfield, which will be a huge blow after he scored the winner against Bolton.
