The Stags are back on the road this weekend, with a bumper away following expected for the clash against Northampton Town. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the Sky Bet League Two fixture…
Mansfield have a number of absentees for the game. Striker Oli Hawkins and midfielder George Maris were both substituted due to injury in the last outing against Oldham Athletic and are therefore doubts for this weekend.
Defenders Kellan Gordon, James Perch, George Cooper and Richard Nartey are also out with injuries, along with midfielder Ryan Stirk.
Midfielder Stephen Quinn and forward Tyrese Sinclair are suspended for the game.
Stags will be boosted by the return of centre-back Farrend Rawson, who served his one-game suspension in the home match against Oldham.
The Stags have tightened up defensively of late but will be looking to get back on the winning trail this weekend.
Nigel Clough’s men have conceded just twice in their last three league games, drawing two and losing one.
Last time out for the Cobblers was a clash against Hartlepool, in which they conceded late on to lose 2-1 away from home.
We last faced Northampton away from home in the 2019/20 season. The Stags won the match 2-1, in their last fixture before the season was curtailed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Striker Danny Rose and midfielder Willem Tomlinson were on the scoresheet for the amber and blue.
The referee for Saturday’s game will be Robert Lewis, assisted by Oliver Bickle and Kevin Morris. The fourth official will be Marvyn Amphlett.
Mr. Lewis last took charge of a Mansfield game in our 1-0 win away at Cambridge United last season.
