Match Preview: Staveley Miners Welfare (H)

AFC Mansfield will look to build on Saturday's excellent victory over Garforth Town up against a Staveley Miners Welfare side who are just one point behind the Bulls.

Previous meeting

These two sides haven't faced one another since January 2020 before the covid-19 pandemic began to disrupt football, and it was a joyous match for the Bulls.

Following a goalless first half, Ross Duggan stepped up to the spot and netted home a penalty in the 72nd minute, before the attacker doubled his tally in the last minute to clinch a 2-0 victory.

This victory helped AFC Mansfield rise to 16th in the table, before the season would eventually be null and voided.

Form guide

Following a run of three straight defeats, the Bulls were desperate for a result over Garforth last Saturday; and that they got.

Despite being the underdogs against the Miners, who sit second in the division, a fantastic strike from Layton Karkach helped grasp the three points for AFC Mansfield.

Staveley Miners Welfare have hit a slight bump following a heavy defeat to Pensitone Church and a close loss to Garforth.

But with two defeats in their previous six matches, Staveley Miners will be hoping to break their slight duct and to overtake Mansfield in the table.
