History of the Kettering Town v Mansfield Town fixture

Mansfield Town face a trip to Kettering Town at Rockingham Road Ground on Tuesday evening, and will hope to continue their unbeaten record at the ground. Out of their two previous meetings, the Stags have won one, and drawn the other.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was less than a year ago, in March 2010, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a (Conference) Premier match.
