Team News

Scans last week revealed that Ritchie Sutton (Leg) will be out for a few months whilst Zoumana Bakayogo (calf) will be missing out of the squad for a few weeks whilst he recovers.

Liam Ridehalgh (knee) and Adam Buxton (leg) both continue light training so will miss this game. Evan Gumbs (leg) is also a long term absentee for Rovers.

Mansfield bolstered their squad during the summer, including Craig Davies, Otis Khan, Neal Bishop and Tyler Walker.

Their injury concerns only consist of two long terms absentees. Defenders David Mirfin and Zander Diamond are both sidelined for The Stags.

Head to Head

The first meeting between the two sides was in 1933 when Rovers recorded a 3-0 win. Our biggest victory over Mansfield came in a 6-2 win in 1990 and our biggest loss being a 6-1 defeat in 2002.

Games won: 33
