Preview: Stags v Exeter

3 March 2022

The Stags are back at home tomorrow night for a Sky Bet League Two clash with promotion rivals Exeter City at One Call Stadium (7.45pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…

Please read these special notices, which include COVID-19 safety guidelines, before attending the match at One Call Stadium:


  • The match is now an all-ticket affair for what is expected to be the largest crowd of the season so far. Ticket sales are close to selling out ahead of the match, which kicks-off at 7.45pm.

In order to maximise the capacity of One Call Stadium, the decision to transfer to all-ticket means that tickets cannot be purchased on the day of the fixture but allows an increased number of tickets to be made available for supporters.

Supporters will be able to collect their tickets on the day, however, purchases need to be completed today.

We have extended the opening hours of the ticket office and supporters will be able to attend and purchase tickets until 8pm this evening.

  • We invite supporters to join us in a minute’s applause after the 30th minute in tomorrow evening’s match – marking 30 years of Ukraine independence – as we show our solidarity with Ukraine.
  • Portland College are holding a bucket collection from 6pm on the evening of the game outside One Call Stadium. Please give generously to the Mansfield-based, specialist college for people with disabilities.
  • We are pleased to welcome guests from AKA – Health Wealth & Oneness CIC to One Call Stadium for this evening’s match. AKA - founded by our former youth team player Anton Brown - is a non-profit company which looks to make a positive impact in the community whilst making people happier, healthier and unified.
  • The Stags’ Supporters Association will be selling programmes at their table in Sandy’s Bar & Kitchen from 6.30pm
  • Proof of a negative test or double vaccination is not required for Tuesday's game
  • Please do not attend the match if you’re experiencing symptoms of COVID-19
  • Sanitiser will be available throughout the stadium

  • We encourage mask wearing whilst not seated
  • Please respect others by keeping a safe distance especially within toilet areas, queuing and on the concourse
  • Kiosks will be open, along with Sandy's Bar & Kitchen and the fans' zone bar
  • Please arrive in plenty of time ahead of kick-off


Stags’ boss Nigel Clough says top scorer Rhys Oates and midfielder George Maris are ‘doubts’ for the home contest against the Grecians.

Centre-backs Oli Hawkins and John-Joe O’Toole will be unavailable as the pair serve the second match of their suspensions.


The Stags are unbeaten in the last 13 league games.

Mansfield sit inside the Sky Bet League Two play-off positions. Victory over fourth place Exeter would see the Stags go above tomorrow evening’s opponents and into the top three, ahead of the weekend’s games.

The Grecians have won four out of their last five league matches.


The last time the two sides faced each other was 23 October 2021.

Exeter won the match 2-1 at St James Park. Oli Hawkins scored for the Stags.


The referee for the match is Ollie Yates. Mr. Yates will be assisted by Conor Brown, Ian Smedley and fourth official, Andrew Hendley.
