Mind the Gap

Seeing as we are having a lovely pop at our faltering rivals down the A60, a superb blog regarding their 'wheel falling off' has been published this week.

Amber Antlers describes itself as 'Another Mansfield Town Blog', but in the two pieces done to date, they have honed in our two most nearest rivals and the rivalry we enjoy to this day.

It looks like 17th March 2018 could be a massive day for football in Nottinghamshire.

Cast your mind back to just over a month ago. Boxing Day, to be precise.

Whilst Mansfield suffered a slight Christmas hangover, eeking out a gritty draw in sunny Cleethorpes against a determined and physical Grimsby Town side, Notts County were doing the business away at Morecambe, smashing them 4-1.

"Mind the gap!" Magpies` fans taunted on social media.

Mansfield were lurking in 8th place in by no means bad form, but Notts County were ELEVEN points better off in 2nd position. They almost looked uncatchable. They were on a roll, and their fans were as optimistic as they had been since the 'glory` days of Sven and Sol.
