After 6.5 miles, take the A57/A614/B6420 exit toward Worksop/Sheffield/Nottingham/Ollerton/Babworth. Follow A614 and Mansfield Road/A60. At the roundabout, take the 3rd exit.

London Road/A60. Turn left onto Cattle Market Road/A6011. Turn right onto Meadow Lane and your destination will be on the right.

There are various places for away fans to go before the match. With the Meadow Lane Sports Bar exclusive to home fans, the Iron travelling support will have a number of places to eat and drink. The Trent Bridge Inn and the Southbank are just over Trent Bridge, while the Riverbank and Hooters are also in close proximity. They all serve food as well. For fast food, Burger King, KFC and McDonalds are all close by. There is plenty of choice in Nottingham city centre too.

The Iron fans will be situated in the Jimmy Sirrel Stand to the side of the pitch. With no home fans being in that stand, usually around two thirds of the stand is allocated to the away support. The view is a good one, with there being food available to purchase around the ground. With the match being towards the end of March, the Iron can expect the weather to pick up and be a little warmer than the winter months. The stand allows the away support to create a good atmosphere with a good view of the game. The stand does catch the sun, so hats and sunglasses may be advisable.
