Preview: Barrow v Stags

3 November 2022

The Stags are in Emirates FA Cup first round action this Saturday (05 November) away at Barrow (3pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


Hiram Boateng will be suspended. The midfielder was dismissed in last weekend’s match at home to Swindon – receiving two bookings.

Rhys Oates will be unavailable as he continues his rehabilitation on a ruptured pectoral muscle.

Stephen McLaughlin has been playing with a sore knee in recent matches and will be assessed ahead of the weekend.

Riley Harbottle will also be assessed. Should the defender pass the necessary protocols following the concussion he suffered away at Crawley in the league, he could feature at Holker Street.


The referee for this Saturday's match will be Andy Haines. Mr. Haines will be assisted by Ivan Stankovic, Alex Gray and fourth official, Richard Holmes.


The last time the two sides met was in October 2022. Jordan Bowery scored the winner as the teams faced each other in Sky Bet League Two at Holker Street last month.
