Match Preview: Mansfield Town

11 September 2020

Tranmere Rovers kick-start their Sky Bet League Two campaign on Saturday afternoon, taking on Mansfield Town at the One Call Stadium at 3:00pm. 
 
Team news 
Tranmere have sustained a ‘couple’ of injuries ahead of this weekend’s contest, manager Mike Jackson confirmed in his pre-match press conference.   
 
Match officials  
Referee: James Bell. 
Assistant referees: Declan Ford and Kevin Howick.
Fourth official: Lisa Rashid. 
 
One to watch  
Midfielder, Ollie Clarke. The 28-year-old joined the Stags this summer from Bristol Rovers, ending his 11-year association with the club. Clarke was captain of the Gas prior to his departure and brings a wealth of experience to Sky Bet League Two having made over 250 EFL appearances.  
Capable of dictating play and leading by example, Clarke will be at the heart of forging Mansfield’s attacking chances and will need monitoring closely to prevent the likes of Nicky Maynard and former Rovers striker Andy Cook receiving the required service to trouble Tranmere.
