Match Preview: Winterton Rangers (H)

For the first time this month, the Bulls return to home action, as Winterton Rangers travel to the Forest Town Arena.


After a three week break from donning the home supporters, Phil Buxton and the squad will look to bounce back from last weekend's disappointing result.


Previous meeting

It has been five years since these two sides last faced one another, following the Bulls promotion to to NCEL Premier Division in 2016.


But despite that success, last time out it was a heavy defeat for AFC Mansfield, who suffered a 4-1 defeat at Winterton Rangers.


In what was a strange season however, the reverse fixture which took place at the Forest Town Arena, AFC Mansfield celebrated a fantastic 8-0 victory over Winterton Rangers.


A hattrick for Dean Rick, a brace from Craig Mitchell, and individual goal from Mark Dudley, Ryan Williams and Carl Haslam helped the Bulls to an excellent triumph.

Form guide

The Bulls are looking to bounce back from a disappointing afternoon in Grimsby, as Grimsby Borough caused a heavy result with a 5-1 drumming.


Prior to the Grimsby match, AFC Mansfield were in good form, having gone on an unbeaten streak including a penalty shootout victory over Goole AFC in the NCEL League Cup second round.


Winterton themselves are in some mixed form, having defeated Eccleshill United 4-0 on Tuesday night, but also being defeated by Penistone Church last over a week ago.


Hellewell's side also advanced through the NCEL League Cup, defeating Emley on penalties.
