Stags match with Histon goes ahead

MANSFIELD Town’s home match with Histon has beaten two Saturday morning inspections and will go ahead.

The Field Mill pitch was passed fit by both local referee Russell Booth during an early precautionary inspection, and then by match referee Ross Joyce when he arrived at the ground.

A harsh frost overnight on THursday had affected parts of the covered pitch, but a rise in temperatures since has allowed the BSBP game to go ahead, kick-off 3pm.
