What 3 Things do we need to do to beat Mansfield Town at Field Mill tonight?
1. Keep it very tight at the back. Mansfield don’t concede many goals – only Cheltenham have scored more than once against them in the last 13 games. Therefore, scoring two goals will be very hard. Winning will probably entail keeping a clean sheet.
2. To that end, try not to sit too deep, which has been a feature of our formation in recent weeks. It invites the opposition to come at us, which is exactly what we don’t want a high-scoring team to do. Moving 10 yards up the pitch will also close the 30-yard gap between Matt Green and everyone else.
3. Hope Lee Angol plays. We didn’t really rate him, did we? He has scored just six goals this season, two of which were penalties in the same game. He has scored only twice since early September.
