Match preview: Stags vs Crawley Town

15 January 2019

Stags welcome Crawley Town to One Call Stadium on Tuesday evening for our next Sky Bet League Two match (7.45pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the clash…

The Stags will be without defender Matt Preston, who was sent off for a second bookable offence in our recent clash against Yeovil Town.

The duo of Alex MacDonald and David Mirfin will miss out, as the pair continue their recoveries from respective knee injuries.

Goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik will be absent for the clash, after recently being ruled out for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament rupture. The game will also be without striker Craig Davies, who has an ankle injury.

Crawley will be without Joe McNerney, who will serve the third game of a three-match suspension, and the injured Jimmy Smith.

Stags suffered just their second home loss in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday with the narrow 1-0 defeat to Yeovil Town on One Call Stadium. The last home loss before the Glovers’ match came all the way back in early September, against Exeter.

Last time out, the Red Devils suffered a narrow 2-1 defeat away to Stevenage in Sky Bet League Two. Before Saturday’s defeat, Crawley had won their last two matches, at home to Cheltenham and high-flying Colchester.



We were due to face the Red Devils earlier this campaign, but the game was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

The last time we played against Crawley was on the final day of last season, a game that ended 1-1 at One Call Stadium.

The referee for Tuesday’s clash will be Martin Coy, assisted by Stephen Wade and Ollie Williams. The fourth official will be Ross Joyce.

The last time Mr. Coy took charge of a Stags’ fixture was our 1-0 victory over Port Vale at One Call Stadium in November 2018.
