AFC Mansfield vs Sherwood Colliery: Match Preview

The Bulls will look to end the year with a derby day victory in front of a booster crowd, as AFC Mansfield welcome Sherwood Colliery to the Forest Town Arena.


Previous meeting

It's been a while since Sherwood last visited the Forest Town Arena, with the two yet to face one another this season.


The latest clash between the two came in early September of 2020, in a covid-stricken season, and it would be a joyous derby day triumph for the Bulls. A pinpoint goal from Ross Duggan would give Mansfield an early lead, before an own goal from Jack Harrison cancelled out the advantage on the brink of half-time.


But heading into the second half the winner would be claimed, as Luke Walker netted to gift the Bulls a deserved FA Cup victory in front of a crowd of 300 people.
