Mansfield Town host Rotherham United tomorrow afternoon in a pre-season friendly at One Call Stadium (3pm kick-off).
The fixture is Stags’ first match on home soil since 29 April, the club’s final home match of the 2022/23 season against Harrogate Town.
Nigel Clough’s men have spent the week in undergoing an intense training camp in St Andrews, Scotland.
Stags took part in a practice match against Scottish Championship side Airdrieonians FC, winning 8-0. Lucas Akins (hat-trick), James Gale, Stephen Quinn, Aaron Lewis, Hiram Boateng and Calum Macdonald netted for Mansfield.
Tickets for the game can be purchased online now at: stagstickets.co.uk.
Alternatively, supporters can buy tickets on matchday until kick-off from the club’s One Call Stadium ticket office (card only).
One Call Stadium is now fully cashless. In common with many clubs across the country, Mansfield Town has decided to move towards a cashless stadium on matchdays and non-matchdays.
Contactless card payments will be introduced throughout One Call Stadium – including the ticket office, club shop, kiosks, hospitality areas and Sandy’s Bar & Kitchen - providing supporters with a simple, efficient and hygienic purchase process when buying tickets, food, drinks and merchandise.
The move is expected to enhance the speed of service and cut queue times in all areas of the club's operations.
Sandy’s Bar & Kitchen will be open from 12pm and serving the matchday meu from 12.30pm. The Fan Zone Bar will be open at 12.30pm.
On the injury front, midfielder Ollie Clarke (calf), forward Will Swan (groin) and Rhys Oates (groin) have niggles and will be assessed prior to the contest. Defender John-Joe O’Toole twisted his ankle in a training warm-up this week.
Latest signing George Williams is ‘not quite ready to go straight back into training yet’ according to boss Nigel Clough. The versatile defender is building up his fitness levels.
