Preview: Stags vs Stevenage

8 October 2020

Next up for the Stags is a Sky Bet League Two clash against Stevenage at One Call Stadium on Saturday 10 October (3pm). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


The Stags will be without wing-back Joe Riley, who is currently recovering from an ACL injury suffered in pre-season training.

For the visitors, forward Inih Effiong could miss out.


The Stags head into the game following a spirited performance at Newport County last time out in Sky Bet League Two.

A Stephen McLaughlin thunderbolt saw the amber and blue take a deserved lead, before a Scott Twine goal and controversial Matt Dolan penalty saw the hosts snatch the three points.

Stevenage head into Saturday’s match 16th in the league standings, following one win, one draw and two losses from their opening four fixtures.


We last faced Stevenage at One Call Stadium over a year ago, a 0-0 draw in August 2019.

The Stags were set to face Stevenage away from home in April 2020, before the 2019/20 season was curtailed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The referee for Saturday’s match will be Sebastian Stockbridge, assisted by Andrew Aylott and Graeme Fyvie. The fourth official will be Marvyn Amphlett.

Mr. Stockbridge last took charge of a Stags’ fixture in our 3-2 loss against Colchester United in November 2019.
