Last Time We Met Mansfield Town

8 March 2019

Port Vale host high-flying Mansfield Town in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday afternoon, but can you remember what happened when the two sides met at Field Mill earlier on this season?

It was back in November 2018 when the two teams last faced off, and it was the Stags who came out on top to take all three points in Sky Bet League Two.

The first half didn't see to many chances come about for either side, but the decisive goal was scored four minutes before the break, with CJ Hamilton curling a strike into the far corner beyond Scott Brown.

Mansfield almost doubled their advantage just after half-time, but Brown got down well to deny his backheel. Manny Oyeleke was then sent off for Vale on 64 minutes, and the uphill task became even more difficult for Neil Aspin's men.

The hosts then had further chances to widen the margin of victory, but they had to settle for just the one goal despite their control on proceedings.

There have been exactly 50 meetings between the two clubs during the history, and it's Vale who edge the head-to-head with 21 victories. Mansfield have came out on top on 16 occasions, whilst 13 fixtures have ended as a stalemate.
