The Stags welcome Morecambe back to One Call Stadium on Tuesday evening for their first round Carabao Cup encounter. Here’s your match preview ahead of the game…
Mansfield will be without long-term absentees Craig Davies and Bobby Olejnik for the clash. The game will also likely come too soon for midfielder Willem Tomlinson.
Fellow midfield man Jacob Mellis, alongside defender Matt Preston, are suspended for the fixture.
However, assistant manager Lee Glover confirmed in Monday morning's news conference that defender Hayden White is in contention to start Tuesday's match.
The Shrimps will be without A-Jay Leitch-Smith at One Call Stadium.
Both sides met at One Call Stadium on Saturday for their respective second league games of the season.
Mansfield were made to come back from two goals down once more to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign, with the Shrimps’ promising performance earning them their first point of the season after an opening day defeat to Grimsby.
The referee for Tuesday’s game will be Robert Lewis, assisted by Paul Hobday and Matthew Perry. The fourth official will be Conor Brown.
Mr. Lewis last took charge of a Stags’ fixture when we visited Carlisle in January 2019, a 3-2 loss at Brunton Park.
Ticket prices for the fixture have been slashed and are therefore set at £10 for adults or £5 for concessions (under-18s and over-65s).
