Preview: Walsall vs Stags

10 September 2021

Next up for the Stags is a trip to face Walsall in Sky Bet League Two on Saturday (3pm). Here's all you need to know ahead of the game...


Suspended midfield duo Ollie Clarke and Stephen Quinn will miss the game following their red cards against Harrogate Town last weekend.

Defender James Perch will not be available for selection following a recent injury in training.

Walsall will be without on-loan Stags’ defender Rollin Menayese, who is unable to feature against his parent club.


The Stags will look to return to winning ways following a recent difficult period on the pitch.

Last time out, the amber and blue took an early lead against Harrogate, who replied with three goals of their own to win 3-1.

Mansfield finished the game with nine men following two red cards to midfielders Clarke and Quinn in the second-half.

Walsall have gained some momentum after a poor start to the season, as they followed a 1-0 victory over Stevenage with an impressive 1-1 draw away at promotion hopefuls Bradford City.


We last faced the Saddlers on a bitterly cold evening in February 2021.

Max Melbourne gave the hosts the lead, before skipper Ollie Clarke equalised eight minutes later.

The game concluded with a 1-1 scoreline at the Banks’s Stadium, ending a five-game winning streak for the Stags.


The referee for Saturday’s game will be David Rock, assisted by Paul Stonier and Daniel Bonneywell. The fourth official will be Ian Smedley.

Mr. Rock last took charge of a Mansfield fixture in our 2-2 draw away at Leyton Orient in September 2020.
