Preview: Northampton v Stags

17 May 2022

The Stags face Northampton Town tomorrow evening (Wednesday) in the second leg of the club’s play-off semi-final at Sixfields (7.45pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


Midfielder Stephen Quinn is ‘doubtful’ to feature according to Stags’ boss Nigel Clough.

The 36-year-old was withdrawn in the first leg on Saturday due to an ongoing hip problem which has seen him side-lined in previous matches.

Midfield duo Matty Longstaff and George Maris will be assessed prior to the fixture.

Left-back Stephen McLaughlin will also be assessed but the Players’ Player of the Season claims he is ‘ready to go’.


Mansfield have not lost in their previous five matches.

Goals from Rhys Oates and Jordan Bowery ensured the Stags take a 2-1 lead into tomorrow’s second leg clash.

Northampton have not lost in their previous four home outings.


The last time the two sides met was on Saturday in the Sky Bet League Two play-off semi-final first leg at One Call Stadium.

The Stags are currently 2-1 up in the tie courtesy of goals from Rhys Oates and Jordan Bowery.


The referee for the clash is Ben Toner. Mr. Toner will be assisted by Daniel Flynn, Michael Webb and fourth official, Samuel Barrott.
