Preview: Bolton Wanderers vs Stags

2 November 2020

Next up for the Stags is a trip to face Bolton Wanderers on Tuesday evening for a 7pm kick-off. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the clash…


Wing-backs Mal Benning and Corey O’Keeffe will continue to be assessed in the run-up to the fixture after returning from their self-isolation periods.

The Stags will be without defender Ryan Sweeney after the centre-back tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

Midfielder Ollie Clarke and wing-back Joe Riley will also be absent, as the duo continue their recoveries from respective calf and knee injuries.


Mansfield produced a tireless and energetic performance on Saturday, caretaker boss Richard Cooper’s first game in the dugout.

Frontman Nicky Maynard found the net in a hard-fought 1-1 draw with Walsall at One Call Stadium.

It was a day to forget for Bolton on Saturday, as they fell to a 4-0 defeat away at Leyton Orient.


Tuesday’s fixture will be the first competitive meeting between the Stags and Bolton since April 1993, a 1-1 draw in English football’s third tier.


The referee for Tuesday’s game will be Andy Haines, assisted by Matthew Smith and Joe Simpson. The fourth official will be Richard Bartlett.

Mr. Haines last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in our 2-0 defeat away to Sky Bet League One side Shrewsbury Town in last season’s Emirates FA Cup.
