Boss Nigel Clough is expected to have a full quota of players to choose from for the fixture.

The Bantams will be without Levi Sutton, Abo Eisa and Oscar Threlkeld for the game. Bradford are currently awaiting the results of a scan on former Stag Lee Angol, which will decide whether he can feature at the weekend.

PH-RECENTFORM.jpg

The Stags and Bradford City have identical records in Sky Bet League Two heading into Saturday's much-anticipated fixture, with two wins and one draw each.

Mansfield were left frustrated on Tuesday evening as a controversial penalty decision late on in the clash away at Colchester saw their perfect start to the league season come to an end.

Bradford produced their best performance of the campaign so far in midweek, seeing off Stevenage by a 4-1 scoreline, with former Stag Andy Cook netting a hat-trick.

PH-LASTTIMEWEMET.jpg

We last faced the Bantams away at the Utilita Energy Stadium in March 2021.

A slender victory saw Bradford extend their winning run in Sky Bet League Two to five matches, with frontman Danny Rowe netting the game's only goal.

PH-MATCHOFFICIALS.jpg

The referee for Saturday's match will be Scott Oldham, assisted by Marvyn Amphlett and Greg Read. The fourth official will be Steven Rushton.

Mr. Oldham last took charge of a Mansfield fixture for our 3-1 home win over Cheltenham Town last season, arguably the Stags' best home performance of the 2020/21 campaign.

As mentioned above, the matchday ticket booths will not be open on Saturday.

Match Reports

Report: Stags 2-3 Bradford City

21 August 2021

A breathless encounter at One Call Stadium saw the Stags fall to a slender 3-2 defeat at the hands of promotion hopefuls Bradford City.

Oli Hawkins fired in a brace for Nigel Clough’s outfit either side of half-time.

Bradford took the lead from a Paudie O’Connor header after 19 minutes but Hawkins nodded Stags level eight minutes before the break. 

The striker’s second came inside the box, volleying past Richard O’Donnell before Charles Vernam equalised eight minutes later. 

Former Stag Andy Cook delivered the points to West Yorkshire with three minutes to play, turning a rebounded effort over the line. 

Mansfield boss Nigel Clough made one change to the side that drew 1-1 with Colchester at JobServe Stadium on Tuesday night. 

Striker Oli Hawkins returned to lead the line with Danny Johnson, at the expense of George Lapslie who dropped to the bench. 

Defender Elliott Hewitt retained his place at right full-back having headed Stags to a point in Essex on his full debut. 

Rhys Oates collected Callum Cooke’s loose corner kick after five minutes to dribble the ball to the opposing box, linking up with Stephen Quinn whose cross was headed clear by Niall Canavan. 

McLaughlin’s driven cross three minutes later was swatted away by Richard O’Donnell as Stags pushed for an early lead. 

The Irishman found space to drive left again minutes later, this time his cross was spilled by O’Donnell who floored Hawkins to deal with the threat. 

Bradford took control of the game following a lively start by taking the lead in the 19th minute 

Cooke’s out-swinging corner was powerfully met by centre back Paudie O’Connor whose header beat Bishop and his goal-line defenders to open the scoring. 

O’Donnell again spilled the ball five minutes later attempting to claim Quinn’s cross. The ‘keeper recovered well to collect the ball on the goal-line and deny the lurking Hawkins. 

Maris’s snapshot on the half hour mark forced O’Donnell into a low save who handled well despite the greasy surface. 

Mansfield’s persistence would come to fruition in the 37th minute. 

Ollie Clarke collected the ball by the corner flag, swinging a cross into six foot six Hawkins who glanced his header past O’Donnell into the right side of the goal coolly.  

Cooke’s edge-of-the-box shot two minutes before the break was well held by Bishop to ensure the sides began the second period on equal terms. 

Twenty seconds into the second period Oates drove with the ball, beating his defender before dragging a shot on the run wide of the bottom left corner. 

George Maris, who took a knock from a heavy challenge late in the first half, was replaced by Ryan Stirk in the 49th minute. 

Mansfield took the lead in the 52nd minute as Hawkins doubled his tally. 

Oates’ cross found the number 12, who had drifted into space inside the box, before volleying the ball past O’Donnell at the Quarry Lane End. 

Callum Cooke received the game’s first booking in the 59th minute following a coming together with Quinn as tensions began to rise. 

Bradford drew level on the hour mark, exploiting space in the Mansfield midfield. 

In space on the edge of the box, Cooke found Vernam on the left who stepped inside to curl a right footed shot beyond Bishop in front of the travelling supporters. 

Vernam troubled Stags again minutes later, his fake shot floored Hewitt before finding Andy Cook who scuffed a shot from close-range in front of goal. 

Perch, who recently suffered a head injury at Colchester on Tuesday, took another knock by blocking Cooke’s volley with his face after 80 minutes.  

Hewitt met McLaughlin’s looped cross at the back post four minutes from time forcing O’Donnell into a strong save to keep the scores level. 

His save would prove important a minute later as the Bantams found a late winner. 

Vernam’s curled effort was well saved by Bishop, but Cook reacted fastest of those inside the box to turn the rebound over the line. 

Sinclair found Hawkins inside the box in the 93rd minute but the turning striker failed to find an equaliser, spooning the ball over the cross-bar. 

Next up for the Stags is an away trip to Swindon Town on Saturday 28 August.
