PREVIEW | Mansfield Town v Yeovil Town

Glovers head to take on the Stags

11 January 2019

PPAUK

The Glovers head to Mansfield Town on Saturday (3pm) looking to turn recent form on its head.

Darren Way's side are without a win in their last 10 Sky Bet League Two outings whilst the Stags suffered their first defeat in 18 games last weekend. 

Chasing a much needed three points, Town will look to put a dent in the hosts' impressive home form and in doing so end their search for a victory. 

With loanee Olufela Olomola returning to parent club Scunthorpe at the start of the week and Shaun Donnellan departing Huish Park by mutual consent, Yeovil's squad will have a different look in Nottinghamshire.

The green and whites will still be without Omar Sowunmi (ankle), James Bailey (knee) and Alex Pattison (back), although striker Korrey Henry (groin) could be edging closer to a return to fitness.

There could also be a familiar face involved for Mansfield, with Otis Khan who left Huish Park in the summer likely to feature for David Flitcroft's side.

Head-to-head
The Glovers will look to even up the statistics with a win at the One Call Stadium. 

Having won three, drawn four and lost four, the visitors will look for a repeat of their March 2016 visit. 

With the game heading for a draw, Ryan Dickson's 90th-minute winner was enough to pick up a 1-0 win.

Officials
Carl Boyeson will be the man in the middle on Saturday.

His 25th game of the season, he has so far awarded 88 yellow and two red cards. 

Mr Boyeson's last match involving Town came in November 2016 when he oversaw the FA Cup replay at Solihull Moors.

At the weekend he'll be assisted by Peter Gooch and Thomas Harty with Joe Simpson acting as fourth official.
