Match preview: Stags vs Wolves U21

9 October 2018

Stags welcome Wolves' under-21s to One Call Stadium for their second Checkatrade Trophy fixture of the season on Tuesday evening (7.45pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the clash...

Stags will be without midfielder Alex MacDonald for the match, following an operation on his knee last Tuesday. Defender Hayden White will also miss out due to an ankle injury.

Striker Craig Davies will continue to be assessed leading up to the match.

Defensive duo David Mirfin and Zander Diamond will also be absent, as the pair continue their recoveries from long-term knee and back injuries, respectively.

Stags are unbeaten in their last four matches, and made a winning start to life in this season's Checkatrade Trophy, coming from behind to beat holders Lincoln 2-1 at Sincil Bank. 

Wolves battled for a 0-0 draw in their opening Checkatrade Trophy fixture against Scunthorpe United, but ended up missing out on the bonus point after losing 4-2 in the penalty shootout. They currently sit third in the table.



The referee for Tuesday night's contest will be Tom Nield, assisted by Mark Cunliffe and Christopher Ward. The fourth official will be Craig Taylor.

The last time Mr. Nield took charge of a Stags' fixture was our 1-0 victory over Stevenage in November of last year.
