Rotherham United make the short journey to Nottingham to take on Mansfield Town at Field Mill in a pre-season friendly.
The Millers and Stags have played sixty-three games together in the past in all competitions with Rotherham winning thirty to Mansfield’s fourteen.
Last time the pair met at Field Mill was a League Two game in April 2008. A Jamie Yates goal on seventy-one minutes gave the Millers all three points. It was a bit of a freak goal with Yates hitting the ball from more than forty yards out and while Stags’ ‘keeper Jason White seemed to have his eye on it all the way he let the ball fall under the crossbar and go into the net. The game saw Mansfield hanging to league safety by a thread and after the game some of their fans tried to get into the boardroom to ‘have it out’ with owner Keith Haslam. This was the game that saw a number of Millers fans walk to Field Mill to raise cash for the club and to show the plight of the clubs in the lower leagues going on to raise a reported £1,500.
The Stags ended last season in eighth place in League Two on seventy-two points, three points behind Lincoln in the last play-off place. Danny Rose was top scorer with seventeen goals. In March this year David Flitcroft took over as manager after former Millers Boss Steve Evans had resigned two days earlier.
