Last updated : 28 July 2008 By Jamie Furniss

A mixed team will entertain the non-league newcomers with some popular  on show. First team players such as Jon Stead, Billy Sharp and Nick Montgomery will make the short journey to Field Mill.

Ugo Ehiogu, Lee Hendrie, Sun Jihai and Chris Armstrong could all make appearances in the 7:45pm kick-off. Mansfield's previous pre-season game was against Derby County where Rams new signing and former Blade Rob Hulse got on the score sheet.

The Stags unfortunately lost their Football League status when finishing second from bottom in the League 2 table last term.
