Preview: Bradford City vs Stags

1 March 2021

The Stags are back in action on Tuesday, as they face a trip to Bradford City in Sky Bet League Two (7pm). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the match…


The duo of Stephen Quinn and Jason Law will likely be available for the clash despite picking up knocks in the weekend’s 1-0 win over Morecambe.

Full-back Stephen McLaughlin is a doubt for the game, but forward Oli Sarkic has a chance of making the squad.

Midfielder George Lapslie (hamstring) and defender Joe Riley (ACL) will miss out.

Mansfield forward Andy Cook, on loan with Tuesday’s opponents, will not be eligible to feature against his parent club.


The Stags returned to winning ways on Saturday with a hard-earned 1-0 victory over Morecambe at One Call Stadium.

Striker Jordan Bowery confidently fired home the winning goal, knocking Stephen Quinn’s well-aimed delivery into the bottom corner.

Bradford City are in excellent form heading into Tuesday’s encounter, having won each of their last four matches in Sky Bet League Two.


We last faced the Bantams in October 2020, a match that ended 3-1 to the visitors at One Call Stadium.

Striker Andy Cook – now on loan at Bradford – was on target for the Stags.


The referee for Tuesday’s game will be Paul Howard, assisted by Ivan Stankovic and Andrew Dallison. The fourth official will be Wayne Grunnill.

Mr. Howard was also the referee the last time the two sides met, back in October at One Call Stadium.
