Preview: Newport County vs Stags

1 October 2020

The Stags are back on the road this weekend with a trip to face Newport County at Rodney Parade. Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


Mansfield will be without long-term absentee Joe Riley, as the wing-back continues his recovery from an ACL injury.

Midfielder James Perch will be available for the game after being unavailable last weekend.


Last time out, the Stags fell to defeat against Exeter City. Defender Rollin Menayese opened the scoring at One Call Stadium, but a Farrend Rawson own goal and Josh Key header saw the visitors take the three points.

The Exiles were in Carabao Cup action on Wednesday evening and produced a valiant performance, losing to Premier League Newcastle United on penalties after a 1-1 draw.


We last faced Newport County at One Call Stadium in February 2020. A Danny Rose goal on a rainy afternoon saw the Stags earn victory with a 1-0 win.


The referee for Saturday’s game will be Sam Allison, assisted by Adam Ricketts and Michael Webb. The fourth official will be Andrew Hendley.
