Preview: Tranmere v Stags

16 February 2023

The Stags are in Sky Bet League Two action this Saturday (18 February) away at Tranmere Rovers (3pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


As a mark of respect following the passing of club legend Kevin Bird, Stags’ first team will wear black armbands this Saturday.


George Maris missed Tuesday evening’s 4-0 win against Carlisle United due to a sore achilles and will be assessed prior to Stags’ trip to Merseyside.

Skipper Ollie Clarke was withdrawn at half-time at Brunton Park after sustaining a knock to his calf and will be assessed ahead of the game. 

Elliott Hewitt (knee), Kieran Wallace (head) and Stephen Quinn will also be assessed ahead of the game.

The encounter will come too early for Louis Reed, Rhys Oates, Callum Johnson and Stephen McLaughlin as they continue to recover from their injuries.

Anthony Hartigan had a successful operation following a shoulder injury sustained at Walsall on New Year’s Day but will be sidelined for the next few months.


The referee for Saturday afternoon’s match is Lee Swabey. Mr. Swabey will be assisted by Chris Isherwood, Alex Gray and fourth official, Tom Nield.
