Match Preview: Mansfield Town Vs Barrow AFC

22 September 2023

We’re back on the road for the third consecutive league match this weekend as we head to Nottinghamshire to face Nigel Clough's Mansfield Town side.

We've picked up an impressive four points from our past two away games having defeated Harrogate Town 1-0 and drawn to Newport County 1-1.

That means we've only conceded six goals all season which makes the Bluebirds' backline the tightest in the division despite us having already played five times on the road in our first seven matches.

Team news

Pete Wild has a nearly fully fit squad to pick from with Ben Whitfield and Mazzed Ogungbo both in contention having recovered from their injuries which kept them out for the first 6 weeks of the season.
The Bluebirds are also suspension-free allowing us to have a big squad to pick from for tomorrow's encounter.

The opposition

Mansfield Town as expected is flying high in League Two this year where they currently rank in fifth place after eight games having picked up 14 points so far.

The Stags haven't lost a game this season in the League, having picked up five draws and three wins so tomorrow will undoubtedly be our biggest test of the season so far.

At home they've played three times, winning twice and drawing once when Bradford visited the One Call Stadium two games ago.


Since our return to the EFL, we have faced Mansfield on six occasions in the league and have won four times and lost only twice.

Arguably the most memorable of those fixtures was last season's visit to Mansfield when we came from 2-0 down to win 3-2 thanks to goals from Josh Gordon, Billy Waters, and an own goal.
