Preview: Boston vs Stags

27 July 2013

Mansfield Town face Boston United at The Jakemans Stadium this afternoon, as preparations continue for our return campaign in the Football League (k/o 3.00pm).

Manager Paul Cox has previously hinted that he will send a strong squad to South Lincolnshire, which may include trialists, for what is our penultimate Pre-Season fixture.

The Pilgrims, who finished 16th in the Conference North last term, have been in indifferent form during their own Pre-Season campaign and were beaten by Grantham Town on Thursday,

That defeat at the South Kesteven Sports Stadium came just two days after Dennis Greene’s men were thumped 4-1 on home soil by Cambridge United.

The Pilgrims boast former Stags' players Scott Garner and Gary Mills in their ranks, and the duo are likely to figure against us today.


The Jakemans (Town End) Stand will be closed for this fixture, with admission prices in the rest of the stadium priced at £8 Adults, £4 Concessions and £2 Under 16’s.


We were victorious in our last meeting with Boston United, which came almost a year ago, as strikes from Nick Wright and Jake Speight earned us a 2-1 success over The Pilgrims at The Jakemans Stadium.
