Preview: Stags vs Manchester City U21 (EFL Trophy)

7 September 2020

The Stags begin their EFL Trophy campaign on Tuesday evening, as they welcome Manchester City under-21s to One Call Stadium for a 6pm kick-off.


Graham Coughlan will be without wing-back Joe Riley for the clash, as the defender continues his recovery from an ACL injury.


The Stags were last in action on Saturday, when they faced Premier League Burnley in a behind-closed-doors friendly.

Midfielder Ollie Clarke and striker Danny Rose were on the scoresheet in a 4-2 defeat.


The referee for Tuesday’s game will be Tom Nield, assisted by Abbas Khan and Danny Gratton. The fourth official will be Kenwyn Hughes.

Mr. Nield last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in 2018, our 2-1 EFL Trophy victory over Wolves under-21s.
