Could make all the difference.

First time I saw us play Stags... Keith East scored 5... never seen it since, a few 4's, including as recently as PdC..... James Collins, uniquely as a sub v Pompey.

I'd settle for an unliklely 2 from anybody later.

Iím going today. Flitcroft coming back should be the motivation we need. With Woolery getting better and Doughty back from injury those should be the ingredients for a 4-1 win.

Town have won their last 3 meeting between the sides and Mansfield have only won 2 of the last 14 meetings with Swindon winning 7 of them.

At the CG Mansfield haven't won here since 1977 a run of 10 games without a win for them with Swindon winning 8 of those games, we have also won the last 6 meetings at the County Ground scoring 11 goals and conceding only 2 in the process.

In all matches at the CG every game played has been in the league, 22 matches with Swindon winning 16 of those and Mansfield only winning 3 a win ratio of 73%.

Our opponents currently sit 1 place lower than us in 14th place with just 1 league defeat all season, they have scored 1 less than Town but conceded 9 less than us. Thier form so far has been WDDDDWLDWDD they are the draw specialists with 7 of their 11 games so far being draws.

Revenge would be sweet against Flitcroft who bailed on us last season while both teams were in the play off places and neither of our sides even got into the play offs in the end. The is little love for Flitcroft around these parts apart from maybe Reg who often extols his virtues as a lower league manager. Saying that there are not many will praise Brown either at the moment!

Mansfield seem to have a problem scoring but are defensively better under his management.

We can't seem to defend very well at the moment and also have problems scoring.

0-1 defeat not many chances for either side and Preston scoring from a corner to win the game.

5,835 in attendance with 202 Stags fans in attendance.

Hopefully Doughty is fit and Nelson plays, I would like to see Richards and Taylor dropped with a side of.

                        LM
Knoyle, Nelson, Woolf, Conroy, Iandolo
                Toums
           Alzate, Doughty(Smith),
        Anderson
                     Bayo (Woolery)

I sneaked in to that Mansfield match after half time, having played a Borough League game, saw the last couple of goals. Our home pitch was in Cricklade Road towards the Moonies, can't remember the name of the ground...
East had scored 4 the week before against Merthyr Tydfil in the FA Cup too, in front of 15,962. Happy days...

Ah yes, Crowdys Hill

I like it when a normally run of the mill game has some added interest through the actions of one individual.

Nothing will ever beat the hostility from the stands or the calculated brutality on the pitch that greeted Joey Beauchamp on his return to the CG.

Was half expecting, that by now, 'Flitters fritters' would be descriptive of both what happens to his playing budgets and also of his next employment venture.

Any abuse that he gets will be entirely warranted.

Most important thing is to get back on track with a win.
If we lose then the microwave door might be shut a bit harder than necessary when next used.

The sun is shining, XTC are the goal music, the snakey fucker ex-manager is back and I'm looking forward to the game. I'd love it if we beat him, love it.

All that considered, based on past such expectation well lose 2-0.

Normally give the beer a miss for home games unless it's a more significant match such as a local derby (a 'traditional' one) or big cup game. So it looks like a dry one at home this season!

Boozer of choice would be The Savoy.
