Preview: Stags vs Forest Green Rovers

22 March 2021

Next up for the Stags is a visit from Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday 23 March (6pm). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the Sky Bet League Two clash…


Forward Oli Sarkic will be sidelined for approximately three to four weeks with a hamstring iinjury.

Midfielders George Lapslie and Ollie Clarke will need to be assessed ahead of Tuesday's clash to determine whether they are included in the matchday squad.

Wing-back Joe Riley is a long-term absentee and will miss out.

Forest Green will be without Ebou Adams for the match.


The Stags have drawn their last two fixtures, against Carlisle United and Grimsby Town, respectively.

Despite suffering defeat to Cambridge on Saturday, Tuesday's visitors still remain third in Sky Bet League Two, with games in hand on the teams above them.


Boss Nigel Clough took charge of his first league match as manager of Mansfield Town against Saturday’s opponents back in November.

Midfielders George Lapslie and Harry Charsley both netted to secure all three points away from home in a 2-1 win.


The referee for Saturday’s game will be David Webb, assisted by Robert Merchant and George Byrne. The fourth official will be Mark Dwyer.

Mr. Webb last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in our 3-1 defeat to Lincoln City in the 2017/18 Papa John’s Trophy.
