Current Form And Home & Away Performances
After not so great results in October and November, The Stags have finally started delivering. Their winning streak started against Scunthorpe on the road, winning the game 3-2. The follow up duel was even better, dispatching Port Vale with convincing 4-0 victory. Jordan Bowery was the absolute MVP with three goals scored. He played an important part in 2-1 win against Salford last weekend too! If hosts want better chance to reach 4th round, they should definitely pay some extra attention to this player.
Cheltenham had a lot of troubles to reach this stage. First game against South Shields was smooth, winning it 3-1. The second one against Crewe ended in extra time with 2-1 win. Overall they rarely keep a clean sheet in this competition, but are main favorites for promotion to League One.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Total number of goals scored in the last two head to head meetings between these teams is one. We feel comfortable backing the Under 2.5 option at 4/5 rate.
With all the recent results and forms, Mansfield to qualify at 6/5 does look like a good value. Cheltenham have been completely out of their recognizable rhythm recently.
