Stags travel to Meadow Lane on Saturday 16 February to face Notts County in a hotly-anticipated Sky Bet League Two fixture (1pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the game…
The Stags have several absentees for this weekend’s game. Mansfield will be without Ryan Sweeney through suspension, after the defender picked up his tenth booking of the season against Newport County in our last fixture.
Forwards Danny Rose, Jordan Graham and Craig Davies will be absent for this weekend’s clash.
The game will come too soon for defender Ben Turner and midfielder Alex MacDonald.
Mansfield’s long-term absentees – goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik and defender Hayden White – will also miss out.
Notts have a clean bill of health heading into Saturday's match.
Stags’ five-match unbeaten run came to an end away to Newport County last weekend, yet the amber and blue still hold a record of four wins from their last six games.
The Magpies recorded their first victory in the last nine outings last weekend, an impressive 2-1 win against play-off hopefuls Forest Green.
STAGS’ LAST FIVE GAMES: 3W | 1D | 1L
NOTTS’ LAST FIVE GAMES: 1W | 2D | 2L
We welcomed Notts to One Call Stadium back in December, and recorded a 2-0 victory. Wide-man CJ Hamilton was the hero on the day, scoring once in either half to wrap up the three points.
The referee for Saturday’s game will be Lee Mason, assisted by Matthew Wilkes and Richard West. The fourth official will be Craig Hicks.
Stags have sold out their initial and further allocations of tickets for the clash.
There will be strictly no tickets available to buy on the day. Please do not travel to the match without one.
Any Stags' supporters found to be in home areas will be ejected from the stadium and will not under any circumstances be relocated to the away end.
In the interests of the safety of all supporters, we are in dialogue with Notts to ensure any Stags' supporters who have purchased tickets in home areas are refunded in advance of matchday.
Queues at the turnstiles will be busy, especially close to kick-off, and supporters are therefore encouraged to enter the stadium as early as possible.
Please be advised that search detection dogs will be stationed outside turnstiles around the ground and anyone attempting to bring any prohibited items into the stadium will be refused entry and could be arrested. No refunds will be given to supporters who are denied access to the stadium on matchday.
Turnstiles open at 11.30am and supporters should check the turnstile number printed on their ticket before joining the queue.
Supporters are asked to retain their ticket after entering the stadium to help them find their allocated seat.
Roads within the immediate vicinity of the stadium are subject to parking prohibitions on matchdays, but limited street parking is available for those who arrive early.
There is a further area for car parking on the north side of the River Trent, alongside the river on Victoria Embankment. This area is owned by Nottingham City Council, who charge a fee for parking there on matchdays.
Away supporters are welcome to enjoy a pre-match drink in either The Company Inn, Trent Bridge Inn or The South Bank. Notts police have advised supporters to be mindful of arriving in large groups and respect the premises' right to refuse entry.
Hot and cold food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) can be purchased from the outlets in the concourse of the Jimmy Sirrel visitors’ stand.
