History of the Mansfield Town v Histon fixture

Mansfield Town prepare to entertain Histon at Field Mill on Saturday afternoon, aiming to preserve their record of never having lost at home to the visitors. Of the two previous meetings, the Stags have won one and drawn one.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Field Mill was just last season, in October 2009, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1-1 final scoreline in a (Conference) Premier match.

Recent respective form guides

Mansfield Town's home form is poor, winning just 2 of the last six, and losing the other 4. While Stags have scored 10, a worringly large 15 have been leaked at the other end.

Histon's away form is none too clever either, seeing them win just 1 and draw 2 of the last six. While the Stutes have hit 4 goals, 11 have hit the back of the wrong net.

Mansfield Town's 37 points from 26 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 9th position. Histon find themselves stuck right at the bottom of the division. Their 24 games have yielded only 20 points.
