Mansfield v Colchester: How to watch, TV channel, head-to-head stats & team news

Mansfield host Colchester in the lunchtime kick-off in League Two on Saturday, with the game likely to have a big impact at both ends of the table.

The Stags are leading the way in England’s fourth tier currently and will be looking to extend their lead at the top to seven points and put the pressure on their title rivals, with their nearest competitors playing later in the day. 

Meanwhile, Colchester are languishing one place outside of the drop zone and are only there due to goal difference, so any points whatsoever from a difficult away trip could prove invaluable as we draw closer to the climax of the League Two season.

Mansfield team news

Centre-back Baily Cargill is a doubt with a hamstring problem for the hosts, but should he recover Nigel Clough will likely name the same side which started in Mansfield’s impressive 5-1 win over Bradford last time out.

Elliott Hewitt has been absent since suffering an ACL injury last April, but he has been back in training for a while now and could be set to make a long-awaited return to a matchday squad.

Colchester team news

Danny Cowley has confirmed that Fiacre Kelleher, Zach Mitchell, Ellis Iandolo and Samson Tovide have all trained this week and some or all of them could make the bench for the trip to Mansfield.

The U’s put in a solid performance when drawing with Walsall last time out and it would be no surprise to see a similar line-up at the One Call Stadium, with a change up front from John Akinde to Tom Hopper likely to be one of the only changes.
