Stat Attack: Notts County prepare for trip to Mansfield Town


Notts County have met Mansfield Town 52 times over the years in the Nottinghamshire derby.

Notts: 18
Draw: 15
Mansfield: 19

Notts haven’t won a Nottinghamshire derby in 13 years (Notts and Mansfield didn’t play each other in the league for 7 years between 2008 and 2015) and have lost on their last four visits to Field Mill for a league game.

Since the derby resumed from 2015-16 onwards, Mansfield are unbeaten against winning 4 times and drawing twice with an aggregate score of 14-3.


Mansfield are on a 12-game unbeaten run in League Two and have only lost once this season (a 2-1 home loss to Exeter). In that run, they have won 5 and drew 7.

Notts are winless in their last eight league games but with Neal Ardley now in charge, they hope the ex-Dons boss will steady the ship. In the eight-game winless run, Notts have drawn 4 and lost 4, scoring 6 and conceding 15.

Seasons in each division

First Division (or Prem): 0
Second Division (or Champ): 1
Third Division (or League 1): 42
Fourth Division (or League 2): 32
Non-League: 5


Mansfield were elected to the football league in 1931.

Mansfield have the oldest professional football ground, currently in the football league.

March 1st is known as “Amber day” by Mansfield fans in reference to the day John Radford bought Field Mill from despised owner Keith Haslam.

The Stags were the first club to complete an entire season unbeaten at home in the 1950-51 season.
