Preview: Carlisle United vs Stags

14 December 2020

The Stags face their second away fixture in three days on Tuesday as they make the long trip north to face Carlisle United at Brunton Park. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


Defender James Perch will continue to be assessed in the lead-up to the fixture, following a recent hamstring injury.

Midfielder George Maris (ankle) and strikers Nicky Maynard and Andy Cook (dead legs) are likely to be in contention for Tuesday night.

Wing-back Joe Riley is a long-term absentee and will miss Tuesday’s clash.


The Stags head into Tuesday’s clash having lost just once in the last ten matches, a spell that includes Saturday’s 1-1 draw away at Grimsby Town.

Mansfield’s opponents are in fine form going into the game, as the Blues currently sit third in the Sky Bet League Two table.


We last faced Carlisle in February 2020, a clash at One Call Stadium that ended two goals apiece.

Striker Nicky Maynard, who netted in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Grimsby, scored twice in our last outing against Tuesday’s opponents.


Tuesday’s referee will be Peter Wright, assisted by Barry Gordon and Chris Isherwood.

The fourth official will be Andy Haines.
