PREVIEW: AFC Mansfield vs Silsden

Silsden make a long trip south-bound this Tuesday evening, as they take on AFC Mansfield at the Forest Town Stadium.

The hosts head into the game on the back of a poor league run, managing just 1 point from their last 5 games. They have however managed a couple of cup victories, overcoming Maltby Main on penalties, and Long Buckley with a 3-1 triumph. They find themselves 5 points behind The Coybbdaler’s in 19th.

Danny Forrest’s men however look to build on the back of two great back-to-back performances against Albion Sports. Our recent encounter at the Cobbydale Construction Stadium ended 1-1, with the away tie the week before ending in somewhat of a 3-3 thriller. In each game Silsden proved to be masters of their own downfall, and failed to capitalise on crucial chances to secure the points.

A win for Silsden will see them climb to 12th in the league, and level on points with both Goole FC and Albion Sports, who occupy 11th and 10th place respectively.
