Mansfield Town will kick off the 2017/18 campaign with an away fixture at Crewe Alexandra on Saturday, August 5th.

Today’s release of the League Two fixtures also gave them a first home League game of the season against EFL new boys Forest Green Rovers, including last season’s Mansfield skipper Lee Collins, on Saturday, 12th August.

The highly-anticipated local derbies with relegated Chesterfield see the home clash on Saturday, 25th November and the return at the Proact Stadium on Saturday, 14th April.

In the other big local derbies, Notts County are at the One Call Stadium on Saturday, 30th September with the Meadow Lane clash on Saturday, 17th March.

A gruelling festive schedule sees Mansfield at Grimsby Town and then on Saturday, 30th at Colchester United before a New Year’s Day home clash with Carlisle United.

Easter Monday is an away trip to Luton Town.

Last season ended with a long haul to boss Steve Evans’ former club Crawley Town but the forthcoming season has reversed that trip and will end with a home clash with Crawley.

Midweek away games are much better this season for fans needing to book time off work with the long hauls this time set for Saturdays.

The midweek aways are at Cheltenham Town (Tuesday, September 26), Barnet (Tuesday, October 17), Port Vale (Tuesday, November 21).
