Match preview: Stags vs Sheffield Wednesday

24 July 2018

Stags face Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night for their third of four pre-season fixtures against Championship opposition (7.30pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the clash...

Stags' forward Danny Rose is unlikley as he looks to rebuild his fitness following being sidelined with a toe injury that he picked up towards the back end of last season.

Manager David Flitcroft confirmed on Saturday that Rose will play 'some part' in a behind-closed doors game on Wednesday morning at Hull City's training ground.

Defensive duo David Mirfin and Zander Diamond will also miss out due to their respective long-term knee and back injuries.

Owls' striker Gary Hooper will miss the game as he continues his recovery from a long-standing hip injury. The former Celtic and Norwich striker has not made a competitive appearance since Boxing Day last year.

The referee for Tuesday night's clash will be John Brooks, assisted by David Plowright and Hristo Karaivanov. The fourth official will be Ken Hughes.

The last Stags' game that Mr. Brooks took charge of was our 1-0 win over Yeovil Town in August 2016. Matt Green scored the game's only goal from the spot in the 64th minute.
