Match preview: Bury vs Stags

5 October 2018

Stags make the trip to Gigg Lane this Saturday, where they will face Bury in their next Sky Bet League Two clash. Here's all you need to know ahead of the match...

Stags will be without midfielder Alex MacDonald, who had an operation on his knee on Tuesday. Defender Hayden White is also a doubt for the game with an ankle injury.

Defensive duo David Mirfin and Zander Diamond will be absent as they continue their recoveries from long-term, respective knee and back injuries.

The Shakers have one injury concern ahead of the clash, as on-loan Sheffield United striker Caolan Lavery is a doubt for the game.

The last time we faced Bury was at One Call Stadium back in 2015, where Stags narrowly lost 1-0.

Stags are unbeaten in their last three matches and have only lost one in their last six games. The recent win over Northampton by a 4-0 scoreline was the biggest margin of victory in the league so far for Mansfield.

Bury have only lost one in their last five, so come into the game in good form. They recently recorded wins over Colchester, Swindon and Grimsby.



The referee for Saturday's clash will be Scott Oldham, assisted by Graeme Fyvie and Billy Khatib. The fourth official will be Simon Clayton.

The last time Mr. Oldham took charge of a Stags' game was our 3-1 victory over Barnet in February of this year. Alex MacDonald, Will Atkinson and Danny Rose were the scorers for Mansfield.
