We welcome Stevenage to One Call Stadium on Saturday for our latest Sky Bet League Two clash. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…
In this morning’s news conference, manager John Dempster confirmed that midfielder Neal Bishop and Nicky Maynard will not be available for the contest
He also revealed that wing-backs Kellan Gordon and Hayden White are doubts for the match. Forward Andy Cook, who has a knee injury, will not be available for selection.
Long-term absentees Bobby Olejnik, Craig Davies and Jordan Graham will also be out.
For the visitors, Scott Cuthbert remains a doubt, but Ben Nugent and former Stag Paul Digby face longer spells on the sidelines.
Tyler Denton is still unavailable and Dean Parrett and Emmanuel Sonupe could also miss out.
The Stags have had mixed week, earning a convincing 2-0 victory away to Carlisle on Saturday, which was followed by a disappointing 3-2 loss to Leyton Orient at One Call Stadium in midweek.
Stevenage have had a tough start to the campaign, but were unlucky to lose 1-0 against Bradford City on Tuesday following a Tom Soares own goal in the first-half.
STAGS’ LAST FIVE: 1W | 3D* | 1L
STEVENAGE LAST FIVE: 0W | 1D | 4L
*One draw concluded with defeat on penalties to Morecambe.
We last faced the Boro at One Call Stadium in April. Kurtis Guthrie put the visitors in the lead before striker Tyler Walker pulled the score back level. However, a stoppage time Ilias Chair strike sealed the points for Stevenage.
The referee for Saturday’s game will be Marc Edwards, assisted by Anthony Moore and Steven Plane. The fourth official will be Ian Smedley.
