Form guide

Despite not having a game on Saturday, the Bulls will be looking for back-to-back wins after a fantastic away victory over a high-flying Garforth Town.


Mansfield had previously found themselves in a sticky spell after defeats to Winterton Rangers, Grimsby Borough and Goole, but Phil Buxton's side now look forward with a newfound confidence.


Newark have found themselves in a tricky spell as of late, falling to a heavy defeat to Boston Town and to Skegness Town.


However, the joint management team of Craig Roche and Paul Rawden did manage a victory over Melton Town and a solid point against Quorn FC.
