Away Days: Mansfield Town vs Stevenage

21 April 2023

Stevenage make the 240-mile round trip to Mansfield Town this weekend to face Nigel Clough’s Stags in a crucial Sky Bet League Two clash…

After picking up two home victories in the space of four days, Stevenage returned to the automatic promotion places and now sit four points clear of fourth place with a game in hand. Just four matches remain for Boro until the end of the season, starting with the trip to The One Call Stadium tomorrow.

Steve Evans revealed that sixteen-year-old Makise Evans is in contention to become Boro’s youngest ever senior player tomorrow as he travels with the first-team squad.


Mansfield Town sit eighth in the Sky Bet League Two table and are level on points with the play-off places. They have picked up nineteen wins, twelve draws and eleven losses in the league this season and will look for one final push in the race for promotion.

The Stags are currently on a run of eight games unbeaten, having not lost since the 14th of March. On Tuesday, the side travelled to South Wales and picked up a 2-1 win against Newport County through goals from Hiram Boateng and James Gale. Mansfield’s top scorer this season is Will Swan who has nine goals to his name.

Nigel Clough took over as Mansfield boss in November 2020, and last season took his side to a League Two play-off final. Clough previously had managerial spells at Burton Albion, Sheffield United and Derby County. As a player, he made over 400 appearances for Nottingham Forest under his legendary father Brian.


Boro have met the Stags on twenty occasions in the past, having won six, drawn four and lost ten of those meetings. The first ever encounter between the two clubs was in the 2008/09 Conference campaign as goals from Michael Bostwick, Steve Morison and Mitchell Cole earned Stevenage a 3-2 victory on Broadhall Way.

The first Football League meeting between the two sides wasn’t until 2014 as Charlie Lee’s goal, aswell as Chris Whelpdale’s brace, wrapped up a 3-0 home win. This season’s reverse fixture ended in a stalemate at The Lamex Stadium.


Mansfield Town have played their home games at One Call Stadium since 1919. It is the oldest ground in the football league, hosting football since 1861, and currently has a capacity of 9,186. A record attendance of 24,467 was set in 1953 as they welcomed Nottingham Forest.


James Linington has been appointed Match Referee for tomorrow’s match with Nigel Lugg and Andrew Aylott as Assistants, and Carl Boyeson as Fourth Official. Linington has dished out 110 yellow cards and four reds in twenty-eight matches this season.

Report: Mansfield Town 1-0 Stevenage

22 April 2023

Stevenage go home empty-handed after a battle with Mansfield Town...

Stevenage made the trip to Mansfield to face Nigel Clough’s Stags with just four games remaining in the race for automatic promotion. Steve Evans made two changes from the starting eleven that picked up all three points at home to Doncaster Rovers on Tuesday, as Jake Reeves and Michael Bostwick replaced Jake Taylor and Jake Forster-Caskey in midfield. Sixteen-year-old Makise Evans made the bench.

The opening ten minutes saw little offence from Boro and Mansfield soon took the lead. Davis Keillor-Dunn’s effort was helped on by James Gale as the ball trickled past Thimothee Lo-Tutala and into the back of the net.

The Stags continued to see most of the possession as Stevenage were unable to play their football. A dangerous corner was sent into the Boro box just before the half-hour mark, but the visitors defended well and Lo-Tutala held onto it.

The remainder of the half was exciting for neither team as the goalkeepers were hardly tested. With five minutes to go until the interval, Luther James-Wildin’s long throw-in made its way to Dan Sweeney at the back post who nodded over the bar.

In the closing stages of the half, there was a burst of energy from Stevenage as Jamie Reid carried the ball forward before seeing his powerful effort deflect out for a corner.

Then, minutes later Luther James-Wildin made a darting run down the right wing before finding Jordan Roberts in the box whose header was saved by former Boro keeper Christy Pym.

At half-time, Steve Evans made his first substitution of the afternoon, introducing Jake Forster-Caskey in place of Michael Bostwick in midfield.

Boro looked sharper in the opening stages of the second half as they looked to grab an equaliser. Dan Sweeney’s cross met the head of Max Clark in the area, but his effort fell into the hands of Christy Pym.

Mansfield were applying the pressure on the hour mark and looked to double their advantage. Lucas Akins had a shot on target from inside the area, but it was blocked out for a corner. Minutes later, Jake Taylor was brought on in place of Danny Rose for the final thirty minutes.

The Stags came just inches away from increasing their lead to two, as Davis Keillor-Dunn’s effort from the edge of the area flew just over the bar, to the relief of the Boro supporters.

With over fifteen minutes to play, Stevenage’s third substitution was made as Daryl Horgan replaced Alex Gilbey.

The next substitution to be made was historic as Makise Evans, born in August 2006, became Stevenage Football Club’s youngest-ever player as he was subbed on for Luther James-Wildin in the hopes of grabbing a late equaliser.

Six minutes of additional time were to be played as Stevenage searched for a dramatic equaliser. Jake Taylor’s cross caused problems, but the danger was cleared.

Unfortunately for Boro, it wasn’t to be as the referee blew his final whistle and the hosts earned themselves all three points. Stevenage travel to Swindon on Tuesday with just three enormous games remaining.
