Mansfield Town have been advised that their kick off times for the local derbies with Notts County must be moved for next season.

Both games will now kick off at 1pm following advice from the local police force.

It follows incidents in recent seasons, of trouble in the away end at the One Call, and also recently in Nottingham where trouble spilled over into the City Centre.

A number of arrests and court dates continue from the fall out of the latest meeting, a drab 0-0 draw at Meadow Lane in January 2017.

The away match will be played on Saturday 17th March 2018, with the first fixture at the One Call on Saturday 30th September 2017.
