Preview: AFC Mansfield away to Selston

AFC Mansfield travel to local side Selston Football Club this Saturday and here is everything you need to know.

AFC Mansfield will have the luxury of a full squad available with only Khalid Suleimen missing due to a suspension.

Last time out

The Bulls played their first league game in 3 weeks last Saturday versus Wisbech in a 4-1 home defeat at the Forest Town Arena.

With frost heavily effecting pitches across most of England the Bulls went over three weeks without kicking a ball.

AFC Mansfield started arguably the better side inside the first ten minutes of the game but poorly defended set pieces ultimately cost Bulls the game.

Paul Rockley the Bulls manager said this of his team's performance.

"There were parts of our performance that were much improved compared to our previous two games

The first half was mainly limited to chances coming through set pieces which both of their goals came from and it was disappointing to concede from those.

In the 2nd half we tried to gain a foothold to grab a equaliser but with 7 minutes to go the killer 3rd goal happened and that finished us off.

Parts of our performance were better but we conceded 4 goals and Wisbech deserved their win.

We have to tighten up and stop conceding soft goals which in the three games since the bad weather in December have contributed to the defeats so far.

The sooner we do this we will see an upturn in results.

On to the next game."

Join us as the Bulls visit the Parish Ground on Saturday 4th February 2023.
