Mansfield Town will welcome Sheffield Wednesday to the One Call Stadium this pre-season and are hopeful of facing a further two Championship sides as the Stags prepare for the 2017/18 campaign.

The Owls went within a whisker of a Wembley date last month when they were beaten play-off semi-finalists, going out on penalties to overall promotion grabbers Huddersfield Town.

Wednesday manager, Carlos Carvalhal, will be looking at a third consecutive top six finish in the Championship and will go about preparing his squad with a visit to Mansfield on Saturday 15th July (3pm kick off).
