The Stags travel to face Stevenage on Saturday for their latest Sky Bet League Two encounter (12:30pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…
Mansfield will be without long-term absentee Joe Riley (ACL) and forward Oli Sarkic (hamstring) for the game.
Stevenage manager Alex Revell will have a full quota of players to choose from for the fixture.
We last faced Stevenage back in October 2020 at One Call Stadium, a game that ended goalless in Nottinghamshire.
Our last visit to the Lamex Stadium, back in December 2018, resulted in a 3-1 win for the Stags, with defender Ryan Sweeney adding to a Tyler Walker brace.
The Stags have lost just once in their last seven outings, but six of these results have been draws.
Mansfield will be looking for a return to winning ways against a Stevenage side that recently saw a hugely impressive 12-match unbeaten run ended by way of a 1-0 defeat to Salford.
Stevenage’s recent form has seen them rise to 15th in the Sky Bet League Two standings, earning 53 points from 41 games.
The referee for Saturday’s match will be Samuel Barrott, assisted by Christopher Kidd and Samuel Ogles. The fourth official will be Garry Maskell.
Mr. Barrott last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in our 2-1 win over Scunthorpe United in November’s Papa John’s Trophy fixture.
As a mark of respect, this Saturday’s match against Stevenage – originally scheduled for 3pm – will get under way at the earlier time of 12:30pm.
This change has been made to avoid a clash with the funeral of HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.
