Recent respective form guides

Accrington Stanley need to improve on their recent home record of just 3 draws from the previous six. While The Reds have scored 13, a worringly large 16 have been leaked at the other end.

Mansfield Town's away form is none too clever either, winning 2 of the last six, but losing the other 4. The Stags's have scored 6 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 8.

Accrington S. are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 26 points from 27 matches. Mansfield Town find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 30 points from their 25 matches.
