Two sides who find themselves enjoying a real November purple patch, Mansfield will welcome Colchester to the One Call Stadium on Friday night.

Starting with the hosts, while Mansfield might have opened up the 2020/2021 campaign in torrid fashion and seen as a leading contender in the relegation race, the Stags have bounced back in impressive fashion. Managing to find a route out of the drop zone and enjoying by far their most fruitful spell of the season so far, the Nottinghamshire outfit picked up what was a very eye-catching 2-1 win against play-off chasers Forest Green on their travels last weekend. Now enjoying a three-match winning run across all formats and managing to extend their FA Cup adventure thanks to what was a shock victory at the Stadium of Light earlier in the month, Mansfield should be quietly confident of causing another upset this week. It’s also worth highlighting that each of their last three straight home matchups have seen both teams find the net by the final whistle.

As for the visitors, picking up a 2-1 win against Leyton Orient in Essex last weekend, Colchester have managed to find a route into the top-seven and it is no secret they have a play-off charge at the top of their agenda. Managing to lay down what was the most clinical of markers as they secured a thumping 6-1 romp against bitter rivals Southend on EFL Trophy duties earlier in the month, Head Coach John McGreal also finds his side enjoying a real League Two purple patch. Really impressing with their recent displays in the final third, it should be noted that this week’s guests have collected 12 points from just their last five fourth-tier matchups on the bounce. Also picking up a 3-2 win when they faced off against Mansfield last season, we could be in for another lively contest on Friday night in Nottinghamshire.
