Saturday 4th August will see us take on Mansfield Town at the One Call Stadium in the opening match of the 2018/19 Season.
The last time we faced The Stags in the league, County fans were still feeling the ebbing malaise of the FA Cup run and we found ourselves on the end of a difficult 5-0 defeat.
Whilst the One Call Stadium hasn’t been the happiest of hunting ground for the Exiles over the past seasons, County have proved that they are capable of Opening Day magic after last season’s resilient and thrilling display against Stevenage saw them come from 3-1 down to draw 3-3 thanks to Mickey Demetriou’s 77th minute rocket strike (which eventually won Goal of the Season) and Shawn McCoulsky’s knack of being in the right place at the right time which saw him snatch an 89th minute equaliser on his County debut.
With squad changes taking place over the Transfer Window, there will likely be a number of players making their Exiles’ debut on Saturday who will no doubt be hoping they can make the same impact McCoulsky did.
Here’s your key information for our trip to the One Call Stadium:
