Stags v Nuneaton game definitely on tonight

Mansfield Town’s match at home to Nuneaton Town this evening will go ahead as planned after a successful pitch inspection at 1pm.

Local referee Dave Plowright required a ‘second look’ at the playing surface following an initial 10.45am inspection this morning.

Scores of people helped clear snow from the pitch yesterday in a 10 hour effort to help ensure the match would be played.

The game will kick off at 7.45pm as title-chasing Stags finally get the chance to aim for a 10th successive victory after games at Wrexham (last Tuesday) and at home to Macclesfield (last Saturday) both fell foul of the weather.
