The Dossier: Mansfield Town

18 April 2016

A preview of what's in store this Tuesday

EXETER CITY welcome Mansfield Town to St James Park on Tuesday evening for what will be the final match under the floodlights this season.

The Stags are still in with a slim chance of the play-offs - they are six points away from seventh with four games left to play.

City will also look to continue their recent good form and continue their own push for a play-off spot.

We take a closer look at this week’s opposition:

Form This Season

The recent 2-1 win away at Carlisle Utd was Mansfield’s first win after a run of seven games without a victory. That was followed up with style this weekend; a 5-0 win over Notts County putting the sides ahead of them on notice. 

League Position

Mansfield are thirteenth in the Sky Bet League 2 table, four points below the Grecians.

Stadium

The One Call Stadium, also known as Field Mill, is the oldest professional football ground in the world, having been used as a football ground since 1861. Field Mill also played host to the first competitive floodlit match in England in 1930.

Who’s In Charge

Adam Murray took full charge of The Stags in December 2014, bringing to an end a playing career of over five hundred appearances. Murray made his five hundredth career appearance during Mansfield’s 1-0 win over the Grecians at St James Park in January 2014.

Marksman

Matt Green leads the scoring charts for the Stags by a considerable amount. The six foot striker has scored sixteen goals this campaign and is areal fan favourite following his previous spell at the club in which he helped Mansfield to promotion to the Football League.


Past Meetings

Exeter City won 2-0 at the One Call when the teams met in November of this season. However, Mansfield have taken the spoils on their last two visits to St James Park.
