A Boycott of a Mansfield Town match may be arranged over the next few weeks - if the plan is given the green light by supporters.

Protest group Stags Fans for Change (SFFC) are unhappy at the way the club is being run by chief executive Keith Haslam.

Now they will be asking supporters before home games if they would back a single-match stay-away protest.

SFFC will also be urging fans to take part in a survey on Haslam's administration of the club and whether he should sell up.

They will then present their findings to the chief executive.

"Mr Haslam has always brushed off protests and opposition to him as being a minority of Mansfield's fans," said an SFFC spokesman.

"We aim to find out what many of the paying supporters think.

"We want to know if they are happy with the way he is running things.''

The spokesman said: "It is just a one-off, to show Mr Haslam how bad we think the situation is and that he has to sit up and take notice."

Striker Chris Beardsley is on loan to Conference side Rushden & Diamonds. The 22-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Field Mill since the arrival of Barry Conlon and Martin Gritton.
