Former players have their say

Stallard, Bates and Randall guess the score

16 March 2018

Mark Stallard, Brian Bates and Kevin Randall have shared their score predictions ahead of this weekend's Nottinghamshire derby.

The trio represented both clubs during their playing careers and are eagerly anticipating the latest clash between the sides.

“I’m looking forward to it massively. The anticipation’s been building for a week.

“Notts’ home form is fantastic and I can’t see them being beaten. I think it’s really hard to separate two good teams.

"There’ll be action – it’ll be lively – and it might be one of those games we talk about for a while to come because it’s got everything.

"It’s all set up to be a classic.”

"It’s a big game, this, no doubt about it.

"Mansfield are always up for it when they play Notts. It’s a physical battle and Notts have got to be up for it.

"If they win that battle, they’ll win."

"It’s a big local game and hopefully there’ll be a good crowd.

"If I’m honest, I’m struggling to separate the teams. It could be either a draw or a marginal victory for Notts – so watch this space!"

With large queues expected on matchday, the club are strongly encouraging supporters to buy tickets online in advance. Click here for more details.
