Carlisle v Stags faces pitch inspection


Mansfield Town’s game at high-flying Carlisle United this afternoon now faces a lunchtime pitch inspection.

It is believed the club have been using standard pitch covers on the playing surface for most of this week.

But temperatures falling below -4C overnight has now put the game in doubt and the rferee will take a look at noon.

Stags, who travelled north last night, already have to make the long haul up there again a week on Tuesday for a Checkatrade Trophy tie.
