📝 Match Preview: 🆚 Mansfield Town (H)

Exeter City will hope to build on Tuesday's win at Crawley when they host Mansfield Town at the Park on Saturday.

The Grecians ran out 3-1 winners at The People's Pension Stadium in the week thanks to goals from Matt Jay, Nigel Atangana and Sam Nombe to record a fourth win of the season and extend the unbeaten run to 13 matches in all competitions. 

Mansfield are winless in 13 matches but were much improved on Tuesday, drawing 1-1 with Port Vale at the One Call Stadium. 

Matt Taylor's Thoughts

"You just have to listen to Darrell Clarke [Port Vale manager] after their game on Tuesday to understand how they played. He spoke highly of them and said he expects Mansfield to finish high in the league, and I don't disagree," he said. 

"They're not cut adrift and are still connected with the rest of the league, so I expect them to start picking up points. 

"But, we're at home, we're on an unbeaten run and I expect us to really take the game to Mansfield on Saturday."

Danny Johnson 

Whilst he hasn’t quite made the impact for Mansfield that some thought he might, Danny Johnson’s clear talent means he should still be considered a ‘one to watch’. Johnson first came on to the radar of Football League clubs for his season for Guisborough United, where he scored at a rate of more than one a game. Whilst he did earn a move to Cardiff, the striker could not make an appearance and soon found himself back in non-league football with Gateshead – where he briefly featured alongside former Exeter striker Ryan Bowman.

After a period in Scotland with Motherwell and Dundee, Johnson signed with Leyton Orient in January 2020 and scored 17 times last season. Turning down a deal at Orient, Johnson joined Mansfield this summer. His start to the season has been somewhat quiet though; despite scoring three goals and notching an assist, Johnson has only started eight games. He is a clear goal-scorer, one that Mansfield need if they are to improve their season.
