The game has been postponed twice in recent weeks due to a frozen or waterlogged pitch at One Call Stadium

The match was supposed to be played yesterday but was moved to today at the request of the Stags after their weekend game against Colchester United was postponed for 24 hours due to a frozen pitch

The Wanderers wanted the game to go as planned yesterday, but were rejected by the EFL

The Trotters enter the game one point before the Stags in the table after playing one more game than Nigel Clough’s side

Travelers have another away game in just a few days when they travel to Southend on one of their longest trips of the year

And Evatt admits that the fact that today’s game is moved from yesterday to 5 p.m. today is ‘not ideal’ with the weekend in mind, but he admits that this is the nature of the beast right now with matches coming up swiftly and swiftly in a condensed period in light of the coronavirus pandemic

The Bolton team arrived at One Call stadium and made their way to the locker room

Ian Evatt spoke to the media yesterday at a pre-match press conference and here are the highlights of what he had to say

Nigel Clough believes the Wanderers will be a different proposition than they were a few weeks ago when this game was originally scheduled to take place

The Trotters are undefeated in their last three games in Ligue 2 and aim to make four today

This [Bolton’s resumption in form] won’t change our approach They’ll be a different proposition than they probably would have been a few weeks ago

This is why we were probably desperate to play [the original cut] because we were in such good shape We wanted to play every few days before the hiatus

We need to try to get this back on track and we’re not far from it at the moment, but Bolton will certainly be a little more confident than a few weeks ago

We have [collected] two good points on the road [in the last two games] and now we need something from these next two home games, starting with Bolton

The pitch looks much better than the last time I was here for sure #bwfc picTwittercom / crIrbswDQk

As for Mansfield injury news, midfielder George Lapslie will be missing with a hamstring injury

Defender Kellan Gordon and striker Oli Sarkic could also be out as the pair missed Sunday’s draw against Colchester with knee and thigh problems respectively

With Kieran Lee and MJ Williams back available, we took a look at the squad Ian Evatt could potentially select for today’s game against the Stags

The previous meeting between these two teams earlier this month was canceled due to a waterlogged pitch at One Call Stadium

Ian Evatt expects the pitch to be ‘difficult’ to play, but explained why the Wanderers will find it more common towards the end of the season

Ian Evatt yesterday gave a positive update on the injuries of Antoni Sarcevic, Harry Brockbank and Dennis Politic as they all recovered from their respective injuries

Kieran Lee is also in the game again to start, while the Wanderers have managed to appeal MJ Williams’ red card that was shown to him at the weekend against Stevenage and is therefore available

Not for a long time, Evatt will have the choice between a more or less fit team

This is the third time this game is due to take place after the weather put the previous two to work, but it is dry and overcast right now in Mansfield and no sign at all of the rain which canceled the Last match

We’ll have the confirmed squad news later, with game updates and Ian Evatt’s reaction after a full time to follow
