Mansfield to Win

Mansfield made an interesting appointment over the summer in ex-Burton boss Nigel Clough and after some promising friendly performances, Town are our tip to start the 2021/22 season with a win against Bristol Rovers. The Pirates were relegated from League One last term and they failed to win any of their final 16 away assignments during their dismal campaign. We’re backing the hosts to take full advantage of Rovers’ travel sickness on Saturday.

Mansfield -1 Asian Handicap

The evidence suggests that a Mansfield victory this weekend could even be a convincing one. Alongside their dreadful away record, Rovers are almost certain to be without manager Joey Barton at the Once Call Stadium following his legal trouble and the Pirates will meet a Mansfield team armed with the fabled new manager effect along with a stadium packed with returning supporters on Saturday. With circumstances stacked against them, Rovers could lose by at least a couple of goals at Mansfield.

Danny Johnson to Score Anytime

Mansfield just didn’t score enough goals last season, though the summer signing of Danny Johnson from Leyton Orient should help in that regard. The 28-year-old scored an impressive 17 League Two goals for Orient last term and he will be determined to open his account for his new employers against Bristol Rovers on Saturday.

Mansfield vs Bristol Rovers: Match Preview

Mansfield

Perennial underachievers Mansfield finished in 21st and 16th in the previous two seasons, though there is positivity around the camp following the appointment of Nigel Clough and there is hope that the ex-Burton boss can extract some of the potential in the Stags squad. In midfield, Mansfield have a dynamite quartet in George Maris, George Lapslie, Ollie Clarke and Stephen Quinn, while the aforementioned Danny Johnson could make all the difference up front.

Bristol Rovers

Bristol Rovers fell disastrously below expectations last season when their talented team were relegated from League One and the Pirates’ preparations for the new campaign were dealt a massive blow when manager Joey Barton landed in hot water with the authorities. On paper, Rovers should have the tools to launch an automatic promotion push, though things could turn out differently for them on grass once again.
