Preview: Forest Green Rovers vs Stags

12 November 2020

The Stags are back on the road this weekend as they travel to face Forest Green Rovers at the innocent New Lawn Stadium (3pm). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


Mansfield will be without wing-back Joe Riley as the defender continues his recovery from a long-term knee injury.

Mark Cooper’s Forest Green have a clean bill of health heading into the fixture.


Mansfield made it two wins on the bounce on Tuesday, as they followed up their outstanding 1-0 win away at Sunderland in the Emirates FA Cup with a 2-1 victory over Scunthorpe United in the Papa John’s Trophy.

Tuesday night’s win made it four games unbeaten for the Stags.

Saturday’s opponents sit third in the Sky Bet League Two standings heading into the game, having won three of their last five league outings.


We last faced Forest Green at One Call Stadium in January 2020, an afternoon that turned out to be one to forget for the Stags, as they lost 4-3.

The Stags earned a point from their last trip to Forest Green, as an Andy Cook brace sealed a dramatic comeback from two goals down.


The referee for Saturday’s match will be Brett Huxtable, assisted by Adrian Turner and Louis Marks. The fourth official will be Adam Ricketts.

Mr. Huxtable last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in January 2019, our dramatic 3-2 comeback victory over Colchester United away from home.
