Preview: Stags vs Barrow AFC

26 October 2020

Next up for the Stags is a midweek home fixture against Barrow AFC in Sky Bet League Two. Here’s all you need to know ahead of Tuesday’s 7pm kick-off…


The Stags will be without midfielder Ollie Clarke and wing-back Joe Riley, with the pair missing out due to respective calf and knee injuries.

Wing-backs Mal Benning and Corey O’Keeffe will also miss out, as they continue their self-isolation periods after the former tested positive for COVID-19 last week.

For the visitors, defender Kgosi Ntlhe could miss out.


The Stags will return to One Call Stadium on Tuesday having played their last two matches away from home.

Mansfield drew both of their previous matches, as a 1-1 draw at Morecambe was followed by a 0-0 scoreline away at in-form Cheltenham Town at the weekend.

Tuesday’s visitors have also picked up two points from six in their last couple of fixtures, drawing 3-3 with Bolton Wanderers last Tuesday, before a 2-2 draw with Walsall on Saturday.


We last faced Barrow in league matters on Saturday 06 April 2013, a 4-0 victory for the Stags away from home.

When the Bluebirds last visited One Call Stadium – in February of the same year – Mansfield recorded an unforgettable 8-1 victory.


The referee for Tuesday’s fixture will be Keith Stroud, assisted by Adam Crysell and Robert Merchant. The fourth official will be Nik Barnard.

Mr. Stroud has officiated six games so far this season, with five of those being in the Sky Bet Championship.

He last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in our 2-1 win over Grimsby Town at One Call Stadium in November 2018.
