The EFL and League 2 are looking to the start the New Year with the return of domestic league action. The League 2 schedule has been decimated by a host of cancellations due to Covid 19 but New Year’s Day action is set to take place with a vital clash between Rochdale and Mansfield.

Match Result

Five places and five points separate these two sides so everything looks sets for an intriguing game. Mansfield are the better positioned out of the two sides and find themselves currently in 9th spot in the table just two points outside of the playoffs. Mansfield’s 3-2 victory at home to Hartlepool was only one of three League 2 matches that took place on Boxing Day, so they arrive in this fixture with a win and confidence behind them. Their away form has been pretty poor this season and they have only picked up seven points on their travels which has to be a concern heading into this match.

Rochdale haven’t played in the league since mid December so will arrive well rested. Rochdale have been plagued by inconsistency this year and have some pretty poor home form, currently sitting in 15th if only home matches counted. With rust to shake off this could be a tough match for Rochdale but with Mansfield’s poor away record and the fact that Rochdale will arrive fresh, we have to side with the draw here.

Over 2.5 goals

League 2 recently has seen plenty of games with very few goals, whether this is due to the impact of Covid remains to be seen, but goals do seem hard to come by. This is a tough market to call as you have to think rust could play a key role in the game and the quality could be poor, however when you take a closer look at the form of both sides, you can see that they have both been involved in plenty of games where the over 2.5 goal mark has been exceeded, in fact it has happened in four of the last five matches that both of these sides have played. We will take a chance and back the over 2.5 market here but it could be a game that could easily flip the other way and end up being a low scoring game.

Both teams to score

Perhaps unsurprisingly with both of these teams struggling to keep clean sheets, both sides have been involved in a lot of recent matches where both have teams have scored. In four of the last five matches that these sides have competed in respectively, both teams have found the back of the net. Despite our fears of a low scoring contest, the smart play has to be on both teams finding the back of the net once again.
