So underperforming Mansfield are the visitors to Sixfields on Saturday, they currently sit in 21st place in the league with just 3 wins in their last 20 games in all competitions.
Their last away win was on New Years Day, a 3-2 win at Cambridge. They poached Graham Coughlin from Bristol Rovers in December but he has only won 3 games since taking over. Nicky Maynard is their top scorer with 15 goals this season, but no goal in the last four games, Danny Rose usually partners him and he has 11 goals too, so on paper a decent strike force.

Of 76 games against Mansfield they hold the upper hand with 37 victories to our 24, five of the last 8 meetings have ended in a draw. The Stags are winless at Sixfields in their last 6 visits, their last win was that playoff semi final in 2004 when (managed by one Keith Curle) they left with a 2-0 win under their belts.

The man in the middle is scheduled to be Peter Wright, a second year EFL ref, who makes his first visit to Sixfields. He was the ref for our game at Oldham earlier in the season, a game which ended 2-2, and the only other time I can see where he has taken charge of a game involving us was the 2-2 draw at Exeter last season. He has shown 82 yellows and 3 red cards in his 27 games this season.

If it's on! If covid-19 keeps ramping up at the rate it has today I can see any large gatherings of people being suspended for a while until the panic dies down (or games played behind closed doors).

If that does happen I wonder if the EFL will also suspend the rule about games not being broadcast on iPlayer at 3pm? Maybe issue free passes for anyone who has already bought a ticket?

The first part was slightly tongue in cheek so I don't seriously think this weekend's game will be affected. The following weekend though....? Today has seen a 60% increase in UK cases since yesterday. If that rate continues, according to my in-no-way-scientific-back-of-a-fag-packet calculation, by the end of the month 16.5m people could have caught it.

Of course, these things don't really spread at a nicely predictable linear rate like this, but if the numbers DO start to grow exponentially then I think we'll see some sort of reaction when it comes to gatherings of people.

For my part, I don't think the media has massively helped in all this and I suspect the fatality rate will be nowhere near the level being spouted by some outlets, but it does seem to be particularly contagious and could spread very quickly if left unchecked.

If games are played behind closed doors that will put a spanner in the works for Lee Geary. He's currently on 1500 consecutive games attended. Well done Lee by the way - a brilliant effort.

Football aside, I think some might have overlooked the gargantuan effort by the Chinese to thwart the virus and the fact that Europe cannot operate in a similar way.
If you can believe the published figures, infection rates in Korea have already exceeded that of China per capita and the Italians as of now, are not far behind.
Additionally, the virus currently has a kill rate of 5.8% in China and 18.7% globally (excluding China) as percentage of already resolved cases.
Those figures will probably surprise some?

As for Lee Geary, what an unbelievable effort.

Youre right about the media, The Daily Mail, and London Evening Standard, have gone into overdrive. By all accounts theres going to be a temporary morgue in Hyde Park. I think that we will cope though. We always do.
I read yesterday that there will be empty shelves and a toilet paper shortage. A lady in front of me at the Tescos till had a trolley full of multipacks. And the old guy who got on the bus was struggling to carry all of his.
Pretty sad really. But if theres a beer shortage, then I will stock up! Grin

Take nothing for granted against these despite their league position. They always seem to give us a hard game. But we should have more than enough to see a home win to cement our playoff place if we do the basics right. Hopefully a decent crowd will be in. Seems there will be lots of kids groups in and Mansfield normally bring a fair few.
Looking forward to this.
