Should be a good game Saturday with 2 teams in form and try and play football the right way. Think we've both improved since the last time we met.

Mansfield have started really well and have surprised me but I don't think you've beat anyone above 16th place yet which gives me a bit of hope. ( correct me if I'm wrong! )

Depending on which Rovers turn up I predict a 1-1 with us scoring first. 3,805 in attendance with 727 Rovers fans.

Will Sir Colin (God Bless His Soul) be in attendance?
Bless him indeed! He got rid of all the dead end rubbish at our club and now we're stronger with players that actually wanna play for the shirt not just here for the money!

You've a great record away, we are strong at home, still unbeaten.

Wonder how many gas fans will come? Hope there's a few?

We look full of confidence and belief, most unlike Mansfield Town; not entirely sure I like it.

Dadger coming back home with his promotion winners, with a score to settle for helping tumble them down in to the fleapit of hell. If we're going to get turned over at home in any game it's likely to be this one.

Think it will be a good game , looking forward considering rovers will want to put 1 on us ! Expecting some trouble as it kicked off out side their ground on that last day , so all in all should be tasty hoping it's 2-0 stags , think we might be to strong at the back COYS

I don't fear anyone in this division and that includes Mansfield, but they've made a great start to the season and it will be as tough a game for us as any. Given the way we have played in our last three games I am confident though, because we look dangerous going forward and that was our Achilles heel earlier in the season.

There should be a good Gas following and I'm looking forward to my first visit to Field Mill.

Sounds like both teams will go for it. Could be a high scoring one but our defence are in great form at the minute. Bristol seem very good away from home and we are still unbeaten at home so I'd settle for a point from this. Will be a good test.

Sure Clarkey will get a good reception ln his return home.

Clarke will have the team bang up for this one. Mansfield have surprised me this season with both their results and style of play( from the little I've seen) it's going to be a tough game but we've started to click up front, I'm going for a entertaining 3-2 gas win.

For a side that's conceded 3 in 6 home games, I don't really foresee us conceding 2 or 3, but football is one of those games.

We got sloppy at 1-0 up last week with Newport creating a couple of un-necessary chances that I home/am sure Murray will want to iron out.

Pleasing to see Bristol selling so many, hopefully 4,000 there Saturday

Both sides are in good form and will go into the game with reasons to be confident.

Mansfield are 1 of only 2 sides with an unbeaten home record, scoring 10 and conceding just 3 in those games.

We've managed to continue our excellent away form from last season into league 2 and played very well to win our last 2 fixtures at Hartlepool and Morecambe.

It sounds like Mansfield have been rock solid in defence and still managed to average nearly 2 goals a game at Field Mill. This is a bit of a worry because although we've looked dangerous going forward, we've looked suspect at the back. We conceded 3 at Morecambe and on another day the Wycombe match could have finished 5-3.

I think we'll need 2 goals to get anything from this one. I think it will either be 2-1 to the Stags or 2-2. Hoping for the latter obviously.

Expecting about 800 gas fans. Would have been more if it hadn't been made all ticket.

It's all ticket for everyone. We've all had this debate hundreds of times with people at our club but the pay on the day fan doesn't seem to interest them.

I know they say tickets won't be sold to away fans on the day but providing it's not a sell out then you will get a ticket.

Just heard we're missing Gosling and Bodin for this one. Arguably our best 2 players in recent games. We've certainly looked far better going forward since those 2 came into the side.

Don't fancy our chances without them to be honest. Think I might have to revise my prediction from 2-2 to 2-0,

With Gos and Bodin out I don't fancy our chances too much, our whole resurgence of form has been due to the change in shape and although Leads might come back in to the role that made him player of the month in the first season I'd have fancied our chances in the more attacking manner.

2-1 Mansfield.

Club Twitter says 800 away tickets sold thus far

Sounds like good news for us, We have Clements returning who got the last 10 minutes last week. I'd keep him on the bench mind, Rose in for McGuire and that will be enough for me. Wonder how far off Blair is?

Tough game this - especially with the injuries. I'd take a draw but sadly see a comfortable 2-0 loss on our trip today

Typical, a long rest and end up with injuries to 2 in-form players.

Cant call this one, bookies cant seem to either, i'd go 1-0 Mansfield

Stags all over rovers but 1-0 down through a rare mistake at the back.

Easter sent of for diving and then lashing out at mcguire... no place for cheating in the game.

Was it definitely a dive then? Our commentators seemed sure it was a penalty. Haven't seen the lash out, but surely thats 2 separate bookings and not a straight red?

Mansfield with a red as well now - sounds a feisty game!
