Crewe Alexandra will aim to get off to a flyer when they face Mansfield Town at Mornflake Stadium on Saturday, August 5 (3pm).
Lee Bell’s side has worked hard in pre-season with games against Burton Albion, Lincoln City and Barnsley.
Mansfield Town have lost just one game in pre-season, while enjoying a win over Scottish side Hearts and a convincing victory at the expense of Oldham Athletic.
They will be hoping to start the season with a win on their travels against the Alex.
Nigel Clough took the Stags reins in 2020. Since then, he has managed 227 games for Mansfield. Last season he managed to guide the side to eighth - narrowly missing out on a Play-Off spot.
Clough has previously managed Burton Albion, Derby County and Sheffield United.
Ryan Dicker (Crewe Assistant Manager): "Hopefully we can put into place what we've been working on in recent weeks and get off to a good start, which everybody is hoping for."
Nigel Clough: Crewe are Crewe and they’ll play. If you give them time and space they are more than capable.”

Crewe have won 32 matches against their opponents, while Mansfield have emerged as victors in 31. A total of 21 of the clashes between the sides have ended in a draw.
The referee for Saturday's match is Ben Atkinson. He will be assisted by Kevin Mulraine, Joe Simpson and the fourth official, Ravel Cheosiaua.
