Stags unchanged to take on leaders Scunthorpe

Mansfield Town were unchanged for today’s visit of League Two leaders Scunthorpe United.

The in-form Iron had won six and lost two of their previous eight games and brought at army of around 1,200 fans to cheer them on.

Mansfield, meanwhile, were looking to build on their improved form of seven points from the last nine available.

The last times the sides met at Mansfield was back in February 2005 when an Adam Murray goal was all that was needed for a 1-0 win that knocked leaders Scunthorpe off top spot. So Stags were hoping that lighting strikes twice.
