Preview: Morecambe vs Stags

19 October 2020

The Stags are back on the road on Tuesday 20 October as they travel to face Morecambe in Sky Bet League Two (6:30pm kick-off).


Mansfield will be without midfielder Ollie Clarke and wing-back Joe Riley, as the pair continue their recoveries from respective calf and knee injuries.

On-loan midfielder George Lapslie is suspended for the match following his red card against Bradford City on Saturday.

For Morecambe, midfielder Alex Kenyon is a doubt after being forced off in the first-half of their clash with Crawley at the weekend.


Mansfield will be looking to utilise this midweek fixture to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing 3-1 defeat to Bradford City.

Morecambe will also be looking to react from defeat following their 4-0 loss to Crawley at the weekend.

Aside from a couple of heavy defeats, the Shrimps have made a strong start to the league campaign, winning four of their six matches.


We last faced Morecambe in February 2020, a 1-1 draw away at the Mazuma Stadium.

Wing-back Joe Riley scored his first goal for the Stags in the match, but a late Alex Kenyon goal saw the Shrimps earn a point.


The referee for Tuesday’s match will be Marc Edwards, assisted by Ravel Cheosiaua and Kevin Mulraine. The fourth official will be Chris Isherwood.

Mr. Edwards last took charge of a Stags’ fixture in our 2-2 EFL Trophy draw against Port Vale in December 2019.
