Match preview: Stags vs Derby County

18 July 2018

Stags welcome Frank Lampard's Derby County side to One Call Stadium tomorrow evening for our first home game of pre-season (7.30pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the match...

Stags' forward Danny Rose is likely to miss the game due to a toe problem he picked up towards the back end of last season. Manager David Flitcroft said the following in his news conference earlier today: "We’re probably looking at next week [for Rose return].

"I think it’s going to be really important that he gets a full week of pre-season with us. As the lads have been doing sessions every day, Danny has been doing his pool and bag sessions.

"We’ve got to make sure Danny gets all the work in that the other lads have done and he must cover that ground. He’s such an important player that we can’t take shortcuts in his rehabilitation, and then he needs his second phase of his fitness levels."

Two other omissions from Stags' squad will be defenders David Mirfin (knee) and Zander Diamond (back).

Stags' boss Flitcroft revealed earlier that Diamond has been seeing a specialist for a back injury he picked up last season.

Frank Lampard will have a full squad at his disposal ahead of tomorrow's game, and may use a completely different set of 11 players in each half as he did during his side's 4-1 victory over Notts County on Saturday.

The referee for the match will be Ross Joyce, who will be assisted by Declan Bourne and Ian Dudley. The fourth official will be Andrew Dallison.

The last time Mr. Joyce took charge of a Stags' game was during our 1-1 league draw to Colchester United at One Call Stadium in March of this year.
