Bulls into League Cup Semi Final

The Bulls are through into the Seni Finals of the league cup. Three goals on his return from injury and to his former club help the Bulls to a 4 1 victory.

Tonights half times

The Bulls lead at Hemsworth in the League Cup through a 1st minute strike from Nick Guest at his former club.  I am sure that will have frustrated the locals.

In the Promotion race Pontefract also lead by two goals to nil at Bottesford.

Flash Back

It is 5 years ago today that the Bulls won the Nottinghamshire Intermediate Cup.  The first piece of Silverware that the club claimed. 

Wednesday Night - Pontefract at Home

This is probably the biggest league game the Bulls have ever played.  After Saturday's result at Rainworth we must now win this game to have any realistic possibility of promotion.  A draw and it's not dead but defeat is unthinkable. 

We need all the people of Mansfield to come out and support the Bulls in this massive fixture.  We lost the reverse fixture by the odd goal in 5 back in October.  A deflected free kick in the 94th minute scored by ex player Glyn Cotton sealed the Bulls first defeat of the season.  We now need to do one over our rivals and get the promotion push back on track.

At the time of writing, lots of things could change between now and then, as both Pontefract and Pickering still have games to complete.  We could also be League Cup Semi finalists by then as well. 

We ask that you bring everyone along you can on Wednesday night to make it a great atmosphere.  There will be a strong support from Pontefract who will add to the atmosphere.  Bring everyone you can find and lets make it 3 points for the Bulls and ensure that we have a chance of promotion to the Evo Stick on Saturday in our final game of the league season.  There might be some more cup games to come. 

Come along and support the Bulls!!!!!

Read over the action from yesterday's 1-1 draw with Rainworth Miners Welfare at Kirklington Road:

Next up- Hemsworth Miners Welfare - league cup quarter final

The games come thick and fast now as we travel to Hemsworth Miners Welfare in the league cup Quarter Final. The Bulls beat Hemsworth twice over Christmas with two very different games. The Bulls completed a comprehensive 5 1 victory last time out at Hensworth.

There's a chance to play at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane ground in the final so the Bulls would like to progress. However, Rudy will have his eyes on the biggest game of the season on Wednesday night as we host Pontefract in a must win game in our promotion push.

Kick off tomorrow night is 7.45pm. The game could will be decided on the night. Extra time and penalties if required.

Game day - Rainworth Miners Welfare Away

The Bulls make the 3 mile trip to Kirklington Road this afternoon for our last away fixture of the season.

We hope to welcome Nick Guest back into the squad following his recovery from his long term injury.

The equation is simple win our last 3 games and we are promoted and given the dropped points in the last week by Pontefract the possibility of a league title. 

Come along and support the Bulls in this massive local derby. It's a massive week for the Bulls and it all starts today. Kick off 3pm.
