Preview: Grimsby Town vs Stags

4 October 2019

Next up for the Stags is a trip to face Grimsby Town at Blundell Park on Saturday 05 October. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


The Stags will be without goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik after the shot-stopper dislocated a finger last week.

The clash will also come too soon for forwards Craig Davies and Jordan Graham. 

Wing-back Hayden White could feature, having returned to training late this week after missing last Saturday's loss to Plymouth through illness.

Grimsby will be without defender Ludvig Öhman.

We last faced the Mariners away from home on New Year’s Day. A Neal Bishop header was enough to give the Stags all three points that afternoon as they ran out 1-0 victors at Blundell Park.


The referee for Saturday’s game will be Paul Marsden, assisted by Richard Wigglesworth and Ian Smedley. The fourth official will be Alix Pashley. 

The last match involving the Stags that Mr. Marsden took charge of was our 1-1 draw away at Northampton Town in April 2019.
