Mansfield Town facing a fixture pile-up
MANSFIELD Town are facing a fixture pile-up after they lost yet another game to the weather.
The Stags were due to travel to Hereford yesterday for a Blue Square Bet Premier game, but it was cancelled due to a waterlogged pitch following a 2pm inspection.
The game had already been re-arranged once due to Hereford's commitments in the FA Cup at the end of last year.
It is a fifth Stags game to bite the dust to the weather, with scheduled matches at Macclesfield, Hyde and at home to Grimsby and Nuneaton also falling foul of the elements.

Scheduled games against Woking, Stockport and Wrexham also had to be rearranged because of cup commitments.
With next Tuesday set to be ruled out as a potential date for the match because of an England C game, the next midweek it can be arranged for is in April as the Stags have a match on a Tuesday every week from February 12.
The season ends on Saturday April 20, meaning any more postponements could see them playing three matches in a week at some point.
