The Stags face Bradford City at Utilita Energy Stadium this Saturday (26 February) for a Sky Bet League Two clash (3pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


Kellan Gordon will miss the fixture due to injury (knee).

Midfielder George Lapslie was scheduled to resume to full training this week. The Stags’ number 32 will be assessed ahead of the match.

Manager Nigel Clough said that forwards Rhys Oates (thigh) and Jamie Murphy (hamstring) are both ‘doubts’ for the Bradford clash. The pair missed last weekend’s point away at Newport.


The Stags are on an excellent run of 12 games without defeat in Sky Bet League Two.

Mansfield sit in the play-off positions, in seventh place.

The weekend’s hosts lost 3-1 at home to Harrogate Town in midweek.

Saturday’s match will be new Bradford boss Mark Hughes’ first game in charge. The Bantams are currently 15th in the league table.


The last time the two sides met was in August 2021. Bradford won the match 3-2 at One Call Stadium, Oli Hawkins bagged twice for the Stags.


The referee for the weekend’s match is Andrew Kitchen. Mr. kitchen will be assisted by Lisa Rashid, Darren Wilding and Paul Stonier.
