Who Are They?
Mansfield Town Football Club are based in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, and play at the One Call Stadium. The club was formed in 1897 as Mansfield Wesleyans, changing its name to Mansfield Wesley in 1906, before settling on Mansfield Town in 1910. They are nicknamed “the Stags”.
Mansfield have lifted four professional trophies, winning the Fourth Division title in 1974–75, the Third Division in 1976–77, the Football League Trophy in 1986–87 and the Football Conference title in 2012–13.
How Did They Perform Last Season?
The Stags will be looking to build on their 12th place finish from the 2016/17 season. After a solid season, they have built a base to build upon as they look to progress under manager Steve Evans.
Our Last Meeting
The last meeting between the two teams came in the 2016/17 Checkatrade Trophy campaign as Mansfield ran out 0-1 winners as Matt Green struck the games only goal at Vale Park.
How To Get There?
The 1 hour and 16 minute journey will take you to the M6 via the A500 slip road on the B5051. Follow the A500, A50 and A38 to the B6021 in Sutton-in-Ashfield, and then a succession of roundabouts will take you to the One Call Stadium.
From the Stoke-on-Trent station, there will be changes at Derby and Nottingham stations and then there is an 11-minute walk to the ground.
Odds On Promotion
As Steve Evans leads the Stags into his full season in charge of them, Mansfield are favourites to win the league at odds of 5/1, and again are favourites at odds of 5/4 for promotion.
