Tafazoli, who left Stags in 2016 to join Peterborough United, was on the losing side as the Chairboys slipped to a 2-0 defeat against Sunderland.

The London-born defender played 109 times for Mansfield and won three end-of-season awards at the end of the 2013/14 season despite having made only 24 appearances.

Tafazolli signed for then Championship club Wycombe Wanderers on 2 September 2020 after Hull City’s relegation to League One.
