Big match preview: Stags vs Lincoln City

18 March 2019

Stags welcome Lincoln City to One Call Stadium on Monday for a hotly-anticipated Sky Bet League Two clash (7.45pm kick-off). Here's all you need to know ahead of the match...

Stags will be without long-term absentees Bobby Olejnik and Hayden White.

Forwards Danny Rose (jaw), Craig Davies (ankle) and Jordan Graham (knee) will also be absent.

Defender Matt Preston will miss the game, and the match may come too soon for fellow centre-back Ryan Sweeney, who sufferred a concussion in the recent trip to Port Vale.

Lincoln manager Danny Cowley has just one definite absentee for the game, Sam Habergham.

Stags were held to a goalless draw last time out in Tuesday night's trip to Crawley. In their last clash at One Call Stadium, they recorded an impressive 4-2 victory over Cheltenham Town.

League leaders Lincoln are in excellent form heading into the game, having won four of their last five games. They fired home twice without reply in their last outing, against Oldham Athletic.



We last faced the Imps back in November 2018 at Sincil Bank. Kellan Gordon seemed to have found the winner for the hosts in the 85th minute, but Jacob Mellis' expertly-taken volley deep into stoppage time meant that the points were shared.

The referee for Monday night's game will be Graham Scott, assisted by Michael McDonough and Peter Kirkup. The fourth official will be Andrew Madley.
