Match preview: Stags vs Charlton (FA Cup first round)

9 November 2018

Stags welcome Charlton Athletic to One Call Stadium on Sunday 11 November for a first round clash in the Emirates FA Cup (12.45pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the clash...

Midfielder Alex MacDonald has had a setback in his recovery from a knee operation, so will miss the match. Defender David Mirfin will also be absent, and midfielder Otis Khan is a doubt for the game.

Addicks' midfielder Jake Forster-Caskey will miss the game, as he is out for the season with an ACL injury. Striker Billy Clarke is a doubt for the game, yet is set to return soon from an injury that has kept him sidelined since last December. Defenders Patrick Bauer and Lewis Page will also be absent, along with striker Lyle Taylor.

Stags made it 11 games unbeaten in all competitions on Tuesday night with their comeback 2-1 victory over Grimsby Town at One Call Stadium. On-form striker Tyler Walker scored his second brace in successive matches to secure the win.

Charlton have won three out of their last five games going into the match, with their last two fixtures resulting in 2-0 victories over Walsall and Doncaster.



We last faced the Addicks over 40 years ago in April 1978. Charlton ran out 3-0 winners at Field Mill (now named One Call Stadium) in the match.

The referee for Sunday's match will be Ollie Yates, assisted by Peter Gooch and Robert Atkin. The fourth official will be Simon Mather.

This will be the first fixture involving Mansfield that Mr. Yates will have taken charge of.
