We welcome Mansfield Town back to The New Lawn on Tuesday for what should be a hotly-contested game, the two sides separated by just four points at the top end of the League Two table.

The game is a rearranged fixture after the first attempt to play the game was abandoned at half-time with the score 0-0 due to a waterlogged pitch.

The game was stopped after the half-time whistle by referee James Linington when the pitch became saturated, with 6,000 litres of water being taken off the pitch in the first 45 minutes – the equivalent of the entire month of May last year.
