Mansfield prepare to entertain Huddersfield Town at Field Mill on Saturday evening, needing to improve on a poor record between the sides. Only 2 wins have been recorded in the 6 games, with 3 ending in defeat.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Field Mill was just last season, in October 2002, as the visitors ran out cosy 0-2 winners in a League Division Two match.
