Match preview: Worksop Town vs Stags

28 July 2016

Stags travel to the Windsor Food Service Stadium on Saturday (30 July, 3pm kick-off) in what will be their penultimate pre-season friendly before the Sky Bet League Two season gets underway.

Manager Adam Murray is expected to utilise his first team squad at this Saturday's fixture. 

Stags have already played eight first team friendlies during the current pre-season schedule, winning three, drawing three and losing two. 

A hard-fought draw against a physical Alfreton Town side last week was followed by a 1-0 defeat at Mickleover Sports on Tuesday night in which the Stags fielded a side involving a mix of first and youth team players. 

Worksop have played six friendlies so far as they prepare for their upcoming Northern Counties Premier Division campaign. They've enjoyed mixed success during pre-season with wins over Dronfield Town, Millmoor Juniors and Ollerton Town coupled with defeats against Sheffield Wednesday, Lincoln City and Shirebrook Town. 

The only competitive meeting between the sides was in December 2010 when Stags emerged as comprehensive 5-0 victors in the FA Trophy. 

The match, which took place at Ilkeston FC, was the first round tie of a campaign where the Stags reached the final at Wembley Stadium before losing against Darlington.

Goals from forwards Keigan Parker, Rob Duffy and Luke Medley, winger Louis Briscoe and defender Simon Grand secured a well-deserved win for the Stags. 


The match is a pay-on-the-day fixture and supporters can gain entry by paying the admission prices at the turnstiles.

Prices are as follows:

Adults: £5
Concessions: £3
11-16 year olds: £2

Children aged 10 and under will be admitted free of charge when accompanied by an adult.

To get to the Windsor Food Service Stadium, supporters should follow the A60 towards Worksop and at the roundabout, take the exit towards the A57. 

Half-a-mile later, take the 3rd exit at the roundabout onto Sandy Lane, go through two roundabouts and then the destination will be on your left. 

There is car parking at the ground, and over-spill parking can be found at the nearby Hi Q and Wickes car parks close by. 

The referee is James Bell and his two assistants are Lee Bramley and Jack Mason.

Mr Bell was a Football League assistant referee during the 2015/16 season.
