First time: Jack Rowley’s Argyle won 4-1 at Field Mill in Division 3 on Saturday, October 18, 1958. Our goals came from a Wilf Carter hat-trick and Peter Anderson.

Last time: Sonny Bradley and Graham Carey scored as the Greens won 2-0 at Town in League Two on Saturday, March 11, 2017.

Biggest win: 5-1 on Friday, September 4, 1970 in Division 3. Mike Bickle (2), Don Hutchins, Bobby Saxton and Keith Allen scored for Ellis Stuttard’s team.

Heaviest defeat: The Stags beat us 5-0 in Division 3 on Monday, March 12, 1979. Former Argyle manager Billy Bingham was in the Mansfield dugout, while future Green Mike Carter scored two of the goals.

Most goals in a single game: The seven scored on the opening day of the 2002-3 season. Both clubs had been promoted from the Third Division the previous campaign, with the Greens winning the title with a club record 102 points. However, manager Paul Sturrock was pulling his hair out following this poor defensive performance. Mickey Evans, David Friio and Nathan Lowndes scored our goals on Saturday, August 10, 2002.

Further interesting facts: Billy Bingham is not the only former Argyle boss to have managed Mansfield. Both Dave Smith and Mick Jones have sat in the Field Mill hot seat. As have former Pilgrims physiotherapist Tom Eggleston, ex-skipper George Foster, chief scout Andy King and coach Ian Greaves.

We have only conceded five goals in our last seven league visits to Field Mill and 80% of these came in the 3-4 defeat in August, 2002.

Of the 78 clubs that we have played away from home more than ten times in the EFL, Mansfield are one of only eight that we have a positive goal difference against. The others are AFC Bournemouth, Barnsley, Rochdale, Sheffield Wednesday, Torquay United, Walsall and Watford.
