Preview: Colchester v Stags

4 May 2023

The Stags are set for the Sky Bet League Two regular season finale on Monday (08 May) away at Colchester United (12.30pm kick-off). Here’s all you need to know…


Defender Elliott Hewitt will be out of action for the majority of next season after suffering an ACL injury at home to Leyton Orient last month.

Full-back Stephen McLaughlin will miss the rest of the campaign also (knee).

Midfielders Louis Reed and Ollie Clarke will be assessed ahead of the trip to Colchester.

John-Joe O'Toole trained for the first time this week since sustaining a foot injury, but Monday is likely to come too soon for the centre-back.


The referee for Monday’s match is Benjamin Speedie. Mr. Speedie will be assisted by Justin Amey, Marc Wilson and fourth official, Alan Cresswell.


The club has sold out its initial allocation of 989 tickets for our final day clash at the JobServe Community Stadium, which includes five pairs of wheelchair and carer tickets. An additional 200 tickets have also been sold since.
