Preview: Stags vs Tranmere Rovers

10 September 2020

The Stags begin their Sky Bet League Two campaign on Saturday when they welcome Tranmere Rovers to One Call Stadium for a 3pm kick-off.


The Stags have one absentee for the clash, as defender Joe Riley continues his recovery from an ACL injury.

For the visitors, Corey Blackett-Taylor is a doubt for the clash after he came off in the first-half of Tranmere’s recent Carabao Cup clash against Harrogate Town.


The Stags were last in action on Tuesday evening against Manchester City under-21s in the EFL Trophy. The Cityzens ran out 3-0 winners in the clash following two late goals.

Tranmere were also in EFL Trophy action last time out, losing out on an extra point via a penalty shootout loss against Port Vale.


The referee for Saturday’s game against Tranmere Rovers will be James Bell, assisted by Declan Ford and Kevin Howick. The fourth official will be Lisa Rashid.
