Match preview: Stags vs Yeovil Town

12 January 2019

Stags welcome Yeovil Town to One Call Stadium on Saturday for our first home game of 2019! Here’s all you need to know ahead of the clash…

Mansfield will be without goalkeeper Jake Kean, who suffered a concussion in our reserves’ recent 3-1 victory over Rotherham.

Striker Jordan Graham suffered a twisted ankle in the win over the Millers, and is likely to also miss Saturday’s game.

The duo of David Mirfin and Alex MacDonald will be absent, as they continue their recoveries from respective knee injuries.

Striker Craig Davies will miss Saturday’s clash with an ankle injury.

New goalkeeper Jordan Smith, who on Thursday signed on loan from Nottingham Forest until the end of the season, is likely to be in the matchday squad.

Goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik was recently ruled out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament rupture, so will also miss the match.

The Glovers also have several players ruled out for Saturday's clash. James Bailey, Alex Pattison and Korrey Henry are likely to miss out, with Omar Sowunmi a doubt for the game.

Last time out, the Stags suffered a narrow 3-2 defeat away to Carlisle, ending the incredible 17-match unbeaten run in Sky Bet League Two. Prior to the loss in Cumbria, Mansfield had won four out of their last five league matches.

After a promising start to the season, the Glovers have found results hard to come by of late, with their last victory coming in early November over West Ham U21 in the Checkatrade Trophy. Last time out, Yeovil lost by a narrow 1-0 scoreline at home to in-form Bury.

STAGS’ LAST FIVE GAMES: 3W | 1D | 1L

YEOVIL’S LAST FIVE GAMES: 0W | 2D | 3L

We faced the Glovers in our first away fixture of the 2018-19 season, a game that concluded with a 2-2 scoreline. Mansfield came from behind twice to earn a point, with Davies and defender Matt Preston finding the net for the Stags.

The referee for Saturday’s name will be Carl Boyeson, assisted by Peter Gooch and Thomas Harty. The fourth official will be Joe Simpson.

Mr. Boyeson last took charge of a Stags’ fixture in April of last year, a 1-1 draw at home to Port Vale.

Match Reports

Match report: Stags 0-1 Yeovil Town

12 January 2019

Mansfield Town suffered a narrow loss in Sky Bet League Two as they fell to a 1-0 defeat against Yeovil Town at One Call Stadium.

Jordan Green notched the only goal of a tense afternoon in Mansfield to secure victory for the visitors.

And yet, despite a spirited showing with several gilt-edged chances in the second period, the Yellows were unable to find an equaliser.

David Flitcroft made three changes in response to defeat in Cumbria with both Will Atkinson and Otis Khan being welcomed back into the starting lineup.

There was also a change between the sticks as Jordan Smith, on-loan from Nottingham Forest, made his Mansfield bow against the Glovers.

However, after looking to start in sprightly fashion, there were a few unsure moments for the Stags inside the opening moments.

Tom James struck a set-piece clear of Smith’s crossbar prior to a penalty shout that was waved away by referee Carl Boyeson.

Green ghosted in-behind the hosts’ defence, but after seemingly being taken out by Smith, the referee instead awarded a goal-kick.

Mansfield replied with their own attack as CJ Hamilton’s surging run was eventually thwarted by Yeovil goalkeeper, Nathan Baxter.

But in the 19th minute, the Glovers took a well-deserved lead.

Carl Dickinson picked out Green with a long, diagonal pass that was coolly fired home with his second touch to give his side the upper hand.

Moments later, though, Tyler Walker would have levelled up proceedings had it not been for a fine near-post save from Baxter.

Mansfield continued to press in search of an equaliser and they were unable to profit from a succession of corners that followed.

Matt Preston and Krystian Pearce were both found inside the area but the half-chances never amounted to anything more.

Hamilton, as he so often does, drove forward with the ball – but was denied a chance at goal by Adel Gafaiti’s well-timed sliding challenge.

Clear-cut chances appeared few and far between for Flitcroft’s side as they headed into the break with work to do.

From the outset of the second period, Hamilton looked once more to drive at the heart of Yeovil’s defence but was dispossessed in the process.

Mal Benning then endured responsibility over a central free-kick that was inches away from paying dividends.

The delivery was met by Preston whose initial header was intercepted, before a goalmouth scramble ensued to end with Ryan Sweeney hooking wide.

At the other end, Smith was then called into action as he made a fine save from Green to deny the Yeovil wingman his second of the afternoon.

The ball bobbled wide from the aforementioned save and the subsequent delivery left hearts in Stags’ mouths when it cannoned back off the frame of the goal.

Substitutes Timi Elsnik and Jordan Graham both had opportunities well-blocked at separate occasions as the Stags moved up the gears.

Danny Rose was denied by Baxter’s unbelievable sprawling save before more drama continued to unfold.

Walker had the back of the net on 72 minutes, with a flicked finish, but was flagged offside during the process.

The game ebbed and flowed as Yeovil should have had their second moments later.

Green's shot ricocheted to Francois Zoko at the back post but he slipped, from a Stags' perspective, at the right time, as he awaited a sure tap-in.

Baxter was then equal to another Mansfield effort, this time Walker’s, thwarting the on-loan striker an equaliser.

Flitcroft’s side continued their dominance into the dying embers on Saturday afternoon as they looked to rescue a point.

However, the hosts’ uphill battle was made significantly harder when Preston was shown a second yellow following a strong challenge on James.

Crawley Town are next up for Mansfield as they welcome the Reds to One Call Stadium.
