Match preview: Stags vs Wycombe Wanderers

12 September 2017

Mansfield Town welcome Wycombe Wanderers to One Call Stadium on Tuesday evening (7.45pm kick-off) and this is your comprehensive guide to the fixture.

Stags have a clean bill of health ahead of Tuesday's clash after coming through the 4-1 victory over Grimsby Town unscathed. 

However, whilst speaking to the local media on Monday morning, manager Steve Evans hinted that he could make changes to his side to freshen things up. 

The Chairboys will be sweating on the fitness of talisman Adebayo Akinfenwa after he missed Saturday's draw with a knock picked up in their previous match against Forest Green Rovers. 

Midfielder Scott Saunders and forwards Scott Kashket and Nathan Tyson are all expected to miss out, but will be in contention 'soon', according to manager Gareth Ainsworth.

Stags are now unbeaten in their last three league games, recording a win and two draws. 

Back-to-back draws against Luton Town and Carlisle United were followed by Saturday's emphatic 4-1 win over Grimsby Town. 

Frontman Lee Angol bagged two penalties - Stags' first successful conversions of the season after missing the last three - whilst defender Krystian Pearce scored and forced an own goal from Grimsby's Karleigh Osborne. 

The Chairboys have won two and drawn one of their last three Sky Bet League Two matches. 

Saturday's 0-0 stalemate away at Newport County followed a 3-1 victory over Forest Green Rovers and a 3-2 win against Grimsby.

The draw against the Exiles was the first time that Gareth Ainsworth's side have failed to score in the league this season, coinciding with the injury to Bayo Akinfenwa - the Chairboys' top scorer with four strikes.

Our previous meeting was last season's fixture at Adams Park on Good Friday, from which the Stags ran out 1-0 victors. 

A tight affair was decided by a solitary goal from defender Krystian Pearce, as he followed in his header, which struck the post, to nod home the winner.

HEAD-TO-HEAD record: W: 6 | D: 8 | L: 9

The referee for the fixture is Robert Lewis and he will be assisted by Ian Smedley and Alf Greenwood. Michael D'Aguilar will undertake fourth official duties. 

Mr Lewis' last game officiating the Stags was our 4-0 win over Hartlepool United in February.
