Mansfield Town face a trip to Swansea City at Vetch Field on Friday evening, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Stags will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them ending up on the losing side in more than half of the games played between the two.
The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in August 2003, when they eased past their opponents in a high-scoring 4 - 1 thriller, in a League Division Three match.
