Preview: Colchester United vs Stags

16 August 2021

The Stags will make their first away trip of the season on Tuesday, when they travel to face Colchester United at the JobServe Community Stadium. Here's all you need to know ahead of the clash...


Boss Nigel Clough has a fully fit squad to choose from following the recent return of midfielder Harry Charsley, after his recovery from a thigh injury.

Colchester United manager Hayden Mullins also has a full quota of players ahead of the game.

Midfielders George Maris and Ollie Clarke were on the scoresheet on Saturday as Newport County fell to defeat at One Call Stadium.

Colchester will be hoping to respond after one draw and one loss in their first two league outings.


The two sides played out a 2-2 draw in their last meeting, which took place at the JobServe Community Stadium in February 2021.
