Preview: Port Vale v Stags

14 March 2022

The Stags face Port Vale tomorrow night (15 March) in a Sky Bet League Two clash at Vale Park (7.45pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


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

Defender John-Joe O’Toole is eligible to return to the Stags’ starting XI after serving his three-game suspension.

Manager Nigel Clough said Lucas Akins (hamstring), Stephen Quinn (ankle) and Farrend Rawson (head) are all ‘doubts’ for tomorrow evening’s fixture in his news conference.

The boss added that Akins is the most ‘doubtful’ to play at Vale Park but Rawson and Quinn have an 'outside chance' to feature.


Mansfield’s narrow 3-2 loss away at Tranmere Rovers on Friday evening ended the club’s excellent run of 14 matches in the league without defeat.

Vale have lost just once in their last 11 games.


The last time the two sides met was in October 2021. The match ended 1-1 at One Call Stadium.

George Lapslie scored for the Stags.


The referee for tomorrow night’s game is Peter Wright. Mr. Wright will be assisted by Anthony Moore, Matthew Perry and fourth official, Matthew Smith.
