Going with Southampton as the bet of the day though after the results yesterday not with 100% conviction but they look a different side under their new manager so I am hoping they can keep the run going by snatching a win over West Ham
The hosts are in excellent shape on home soil and have proven throughout the season that Field Mill is one of the toughest places in the league to come and get a result. However, their visitors have managed to find the back of the net in each of their 21 league matches and have the best away record in the division. With this in mind, I think that both will look to be positive and backing both teams to find the back of the net looks to be the best way to get a decent return from this contest.
Mansfield Town’s form is stuttering as the end of the season draws near and they are winless in two as they welcome leaders Lincoln City. However, their form on home soil remains as strong as ever and they go into this contest having won in each of their last five matches on home soil. The hosts know their chances at the title are now all but over but a win on Monday would lift them back into the automatic promotion places and ensure that they should have the required momentum to ensure they stay there until the end of the campaign. Lincoln City have won their last three League Two matches, conceding just one goal in the process and sit five points clear at the top. Although their form has been solid, it is worth noting that the calibre of opponents during those three matches has been pretty low and prior to this run, they had drawn five of the previous six outings. However, there is no doubting the class of the league leaders and the fact that they have the best away record in the division reflects the fact that they are usually superior to any side in the division and are not fazed by travelling to an opponents back yard.
