Preview: Newport v Stags

17 April 2023

The Stags are in Sky Bet League Two action tomorrow (18 April) away at Newport County (7.45pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


Midfielders Ollie Clarke, Louis Reed and George Maris are unlikely to feature as they work to return from their respective injuries.

Forward Rhys Oates is unlikely to be involved in Stags’ trip to south Wales following his withdrawal from the bench at Blundell Park after the warm-up.

Defender Stephen McLaughlin will be in the squad when we travel to Rodney Parade following his brief stint at Grimsby Town off the bench.

Will Swan is making progress and there is a possibility that the forward could return before the end of the season.

Defender John-Joe O’Toole (foot) will be sidelined for the remainder of the campaign.

Midfielder Anthony Hartigan is also likely to miss the rest of the season.



The referee for Tuesday’s match is Thomas Kirk. Mr. Kirk will be assisted by Christopher Wade, Declan O’Shea and fourth official, Lisa Rashid.
