Stags v Burton game still on - further ‘routine inspection’ planned

Mansfield Town’s home clash with Burton Albion looks set to go ahead this afternoon at a rainy One Call Stadium (3pm).

With other games falling foul of the New Year’s Day national deluge, the Mansfield pitch was given a routine inspection at 12.30pm by the referee and was found to be fine.

Once Burton arrive at around 1.30pm there will be another routine inspection with both managers, but, as it stand right now, there are no problems anticipated, though further rain is forecast.
