Mansfield Town prepare to entertain Chester City at Field Mill on Saturday afternoon, looking to continue an impressive record. The Stags are clearly on top, having won 32 and lost only 9 of the 50 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Field Mill was two seasons ago, in February 2008, as the visitors ran out cosy 1-3 winners in a League Two match.
