Mansfield unchanged for big derby at Chesterfield

Not surprisingly in-form Mansfield Town, now unbeaten in seven games, were unchanged for this afternoon’s big local derby at arch-rivals Chesterfield, who have only dropped two points all season, only conceded one goal at home, and sit top of the table

This was the first league meeting between the side for six years and Stags took an army of almost 2,000 fans to cheer them on.
