Preview: Northampton Town vs Stags

6 March 2020

The Stags travel to face Northampton Town on Saturday 07 March for their latest clash in Sky Bet League Two. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the game…


Midfielder Alex MacDonald and defender Matt Preston could be in contention to return to the squad after recent hamstring injuries.

The game will come too soon for wing-back Kellan Gordon, who is out with a back injury.

For the Cobblers, on-loan Arsenal midfielder James Olayinka could return to the squad, but they will be without fellow midfielder Shaun McWilliams.


Saturday will mark two weeks since the Stags’ last outing, following the postponement of last weekend’s home match against league leaders Swindon Town due to a waterlogged pitch.

In the amber and blue’s previous outing, Cheltenham Town emerged as narrow 1-0 winners at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

Northampton recorded an emphatic 3-0 win away at Grimsby Town at the weekend. Two strikes from Callum Morton, supported by a Charlie Goode effort, secured an impressive win at Blundell Park.


We last faced the Cobblers at One Call Stadium in December – current boss Graham Coughlan’s first game in charge of the Stags.

A high-intensity affair ensued in NG18, with the game ending one goal apiece following a late goal from the visitors.


The referee for Saturday’s game against Northampton will be Peter Wright, assisted by Conor Farrell and Matthew Lee. The fourth official will be Paul Kelly.

This will be the first competitive fixture involving the Stags that Mr. Wright will have taken charge of.


The Stags have received an allocation of 944 tickets for the fixture.

Car parking is available at the stadium at a cost of £4 per car. Near to the stadium, off the roundabout by TGI Fridays is a hard-standing area, known as Duston Mill (NN5 4EG). On matchdays it is used as a car park, which is manned and costs £4 per car.

At the stadium itself is Carrs Bar (the entrance to which is at the back of the Main Stand) which allows away supporters.

As the stadium is built on a leisure complex, there are a number of food outlets with bars - a Flaming Grill pub, T.G.I. Fridays, Frankie & Benny's and a Tenpin Bowling Alley.

There are also a variety of other eating places nearby including a KFC, McDonalds and a Pizza Hut. Food kiosks serve the usual food within the ground.
