Opposition Manager’s Comments

Mansfield Town boss Graham Coughlan is looking to field a strong squad on Tuesday night, telling the Stags’ website: “I want to win the game, so I’ll be fielding as strong a side as possible.”

The 45-year-old’s side suffered a 2-1 away defeat to Newport County at the weekend in Sky Bet League Two.

Coughlan discussed the game saying: “There were a lot of positives and things to take from the game at the weekend, but all I’m seeing from the game is the result.

“Top of the agenda is winning a game of football and I firmly believe when we win a game it’ll give us masses of confidence.

“I’m not making excuses, but we are making basic errors, and we are getting punished for every single decision.”

Summer Signings 

The Stags recruited 11 names over the summer with Stephen McLaughlin being the latest arrival joining the club from Southend United where he spent five years.

Farrend Rawson, Rollin Menayese, Corey O’Keeffe, James Perch and Aaron O’Driscoll all boosted the defensive ranks at OneCall Stadium throughout the transfer window.

Goalkeeper Marek Štěch joined the Stags following a spell with Luton Town in July alongside Jordan Bowery from MK Dons, Ollie Clarke from Bristol Rovers and Jamie Reid from Torquay United.

George Maris has also arrived at OneCall Stadium for an undisclosed fee from Cambridge United.
