Recent respective form guides
Chester City's dreadful home form has resulted in just 1 victory and 1 draw from their last six played. While Blues have scored 5, a worringly large 11 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 8 goals in these games, but conceded an alarming 9.
Chester City's 37 points from 28 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 12th position. Mansfield Town find themselves struggling down in 17th position in the league having picked up 33 points from their 27 matches.
