They won eight out of their last 10 home games. While Northampton seem to be in a great form for the playoffs, we think that the home team is better and Mansfield have the better chance to win here.

Despite their incredible results, Northampton are one of the teams that have taken the fewest corners out of the entire league and we do not see how we might see 10 in this match. For example, Northampton took an average of 4.33 corners per game this season while Mansfield took an average of 5.26. Moreover, the hosts had an average of 9.78 corners in their matches while Northampton had just 8.91 per game – the third-lowest in the league.

Mansfield made some serious transfers mid-season and it worked like magic – they managed to reach the highest places in the league after a terrible season start. Their chemistry is in place and we believe that they have a better chance to win the playoffs than some other teams.
Northampton were also quite active on the transfer market this season although most of their newcomers were free transfers. They got several players from the Scottish Premiership and Championship, which gave them a serious boost up front. It will be shocking not to see Northampton get promoted after such a season but anything is possible at this point.
