Details for Stags' three Checkatrade Trophy group fixtures against Lincoln City, Wolves under-21s and Scunthorpe United have been announced.
First up for Mansfield is a trip to Lincoln City on Tuesday 04 September (7.45pm kick-off), followed by home fixtures against Wolves under-21s on Tuesday 09 October (7.45pm kick-off) and Scunthorpe United on Tuesday 13 November (7.45pm kick-off).
The format for this year’s competition is much the same as 2017/18, with only a couple of small changes to the regulations.
Players from EFL clubs who are out on loan in the National League and below are now eligible to feature in the competition, while invited teams have been restricted to fielding two players over the age of 21 and more than 40 first-team appearances.
Ticket information for our Checkatrade Trophy matches will be announced closer to the time of the fixtures.
