Crewe Beat Stoke ahead of Stags Opener
Crewe Alexandra have beaten Stoke City in their latest pre-season friendly ahead of facing the Stags in the EFL League 2 opener next weekend.
With expectations the highest it has been at the One Call for any era we can remember, Stags fans could well do with a timely reminder now and again that they won't have everything all their own way.
Crewe have put a young looking line up from Stoke to the sword, by winning 3-1 on Sunday Afternoon, the visitors goal coming from Mark Waddington late on, in front of a crowd of 2,528.
Mansfield are expected to be backed by an army of around 1,600 supporters for the season opener on Saturday 5th August for the 15:00 kick off.
Stags supporters are reminded that they can still pay on the day, after the initial allocation of 520 tickets sent to club, look to have been sold.
Price is £22 for an adult.
