Odds: 4/5 @ 888sport

Looking to lay down another marker on their travels this weekend, a high-flying Harrogate will make the trip to Field Mill when they face off against Mansfield on Saturday afternoon.

Starting with the hosts, while Mansfield might have opened the 2021/22 campaign with back-to-back wins against Newport and Bristol Rovers, Nigel Clough’s side have failed to build off of that flurry. Putting in what was a worrying display when they faced off against Saturday’s guests on EFL Trophy duties earlier in the week, the former Burton boss saw his side get hit with a 3-1 drumming. Slipping their way down the League Two table and last seen on fourth-tier action getting hit with a 1-0 loss at the hands of Swindon, the Stags have now collected just a single point from their last three League Two outings. In fact, losing each of their last three straight matchups across all formats, it should also be noted that Mansfield have lost all three of their previous meetings against their North Yorkshire opponents.

As for the visitors, while Mansfield might find themselves in the midst of a worrying losing run, the same cannot be said for a Harrogate side who should find the mood in their camp at a real high. Impressing once again earlier in the week as they stormed their way to that 3-1 win against Saturday’s hosts on EFL Trophy duties, Head Coach Simon Weaver has seen his side gain plenty of praise from across League Two. Only making their Football League debut last season, the Sulphurites open September sat as high as second in the standings. Unbeaten in all five of their contests across all formats since opening the 2021/22 campaign, and holding a fourth-tier game in hand, Harrogate should be smelling the chance to cause another upset here. Holding a rampant winning record against the Stags, we’re backing Weaver’s side to leave with at least a point.
