Mansfield Town will no doubt have their biggest crowd of the season for what will hopefully not be the last home game of the season at home to Portsmouth on Saturday.

The question and the build up is now starting to surround talk as to the possibility of the ground selling out for the match.

The Stags need to win to keep alive their play off hopes, sitting one point behind the group currently occupying the spots at the moment. Whilst, Portsmouth need to win to keep their faint hopes of a title win, still on the go.

It is for that reason, that it took just 90 minutes for the Portsmouth supporters to snap up 1,500 away tickets.

Sales for the home end, have been brought so far this week at a rapid rate. Some areas in the lower Ian Greaves Stand are already sold out with hopes that the whole town will come out in force and pack the place out on Saturday.

Mansfield Town manager Steve Evans is urging the fans to give his team a final push as they bid for those play offs. He told the Official Mansfield Town Website on Monday ‘It`s a great test for the people of Mansfield, for me. I`ve got no doubts about the people of Mansfield. They`ve been fantastic since I walked in.’

The Stags best crowd of the season so far was 5,763 against Notts County at the start of October.
