Manager Paul Cox will hope his side can finish a positive week by registering maximum points from tomorrow’s trip to Wycombe Wanderers (k/o 3.00pm).
Our side registered their first point in League Two following last Saturday’s 0-0 draw with Exeter City, before our second-string won at Doncaster Rovers in midweek.
Both matches provided many impressive individual performances, which will have left our boss pleased ahead of the trip to Adams Park.
The Stags will be without goalkeeper Ian Deakin (shoulder) and midfielder Keiran Murtagh (knee) for tomorrow’s trip to Adams Park.
Wycombe skipper Stuart Lewis begins a three-match suspension following his straight red card in the defeat at AFC Wimbledon last weekend.
Meanwhile, Matt Bloomfield could make his long-awaited return to first team action on Saturday.
Bloomfield has been out of action for over a year with a pelvic sheer injury, but played 45 minutes in a midweek friendly win over Maidenhead United.
Our side collected their first point of the 2013/14 campaign following last week’s goalless draw with Exeter City at One Call Stadium.
Meanwhile, The Chairboys lost 1-0 at AFC Wimbledon, but collected three points on the opening day, thanks to a 1-0 home success over Morecambe.
Both teams also fell at the First Round stage in the Capital One Cup.
The Stags lost 2-0 at Tranmere Rovers, whilst Sean St Ledger’s winner deep into stoppage-time earned Leicester City a 2-1 victory over Wycombe at Adams Park.
Our last meeting with Wanderers came in February 2008, when Jefferson Louis struck in stoppage-time to earn us a hard-fought 2-1 win.
Nevertheless, that is the only time we have been victorious on seven previous visits to Adams Park.
Our fell record at The Chairboys’ home is as follows; W1, D4, L2, F7, A8.
