A look ahead to the game at the One Call Stadium tomorrow.
Blues will be aiming to get back to winning ways on Saturday when Phil Brown’s men take on Mansfield Town at the One Call Stadium for our Sky Bet League Two encounter.
Mansfield currently find themselves in 17th place in the division having won five and drawn four from their opening 15 matches of the season.
Following an opening day defeat at Northampton Town, Mansfield turned things around with narrow victories over both Oxford United and Newport County at home.
Defeats against Dagenham & Redbridge and Burton Albion followed, before three wins from four game during part of September helped Paul Cox’s side pick up some vital points.
However, since the end of that month, the Stags have failed to win and have drawn their last four games in the division prior to taking on Blues.
Referee: Gary Sutton
Assistant Referees: Michael Denton and Andy Scregg
Fourth Official: Matt McGrath
The Inside View
Phil Brown: “We have done our homework on Mansfield, we know their strengths and weaknesses. We have to be aware of our opposition, whoever we play against.”
Micky Moore: “Hopefully, over the next seven days, we’ll have at least two or three back. That’s the plan. We’ll see how the next 24 hours go and we might be able to get one or two back, at a push, for Saturday."
