Reserves preview: Stags vs Scunthorpe United (Central League Cup)

9 December 2019

Stags’ reserves are in Central League Cup action on Tuesday 10 December as they host Scunthorpe United reserves at The RH Academy (1pm kick-off).

Mansfield have played one Central League Cup match so far this season, narrowly losing 4-3 to a strong West Brom side.

A hat-trick from Wales international Hal Robson-Kanu helped the Baggies towards a comfortable lead, but strikes from Andy Cook, Omari Sterling-James and Tyrese Sinclair saw the Stags almost record a remarkable comeback.

In league matters, Mansfield’s reserves have made an unbeaten start to the season, winning one and drawing the other of their opening two matches.

Goals from Sterling-James, Jordan Graham, Aiden Walker and Tyrese Sinclair saw the amber and blue record a comfortable 4-1 win against Rotherham United last time out.

Scunthorpe United also lost their opening fixture of the Central League Cup, being on the receiving end of a 3-1 scoreline against Port Vale.

The Iron, however, have made an identical start to the league campaign to the Stags, recording a win and a draw in their opening two matches.

Last time out, Scunthorpe recorded a 1-1 draw against Doncaster Rovers, with their victory coming by way of a 4-1 scoreline against Walsall earlier in the season.

After a positive start in the league from both sides, they will be looking to take that form into Tuesday afternoon’s cup game.

The address for Tuesday’s match is as follows: The RH Academy, Woburn Lane, Mansfield, NG19 7RT.

Entry to the game is free for all supporters.

Match Reports

Reserves report: Stags 2-1 Scunthorpe United

10 December 2019

Stags’ reserves scored early in each half to secure a 2-1 victory against Scunthorpe United reserves in testing conditions at the RH Academy.

The difficult weather played its part in Mansfield’s opening goal as Jason Law’s corner was blown directly into the net with assistance from the wind.

Craig Davies added to the lead with an excellent drilled finish, in what was his first start since his he obtained an ankle injury 12 months ago. Andy Dales got one back for Scunthorpe but the Stags held on to earn a second successive three points.

Mansfield had named a strong line-up with first-teamers Krystian Pearce, Omari Sterling-James, Willem Tomlinson, Alistair Smith, Otis Khan and Davies all involved.

The experienced starting XI paid due diligence as the Stags took the lead within just six minutes as Law found the net in unusual fashion. 

The 20-year-old’s corner flew past Adam Kelsey with the assistance of the windy conditions to provide Richard Cooper’s side with the perfect start.

The Stags were forced into a change midway through the opening period as the injured Jamie Chisholm made way for fellow centre-back Nathan Saunders.

Dales came close to finding the Iron a leveler before the break when his well-hit effort flew just wide of the target.

Mansfield started the second-half with real intent, and an early effort from Khan needed the fingertips of Kelsey to prevent a second Stags’ goal.

Sterling-James produced a wonderful piece of skill inside the area to beat his man, but the finish that followed lacked any real direction.

Then, as they did early in the first-half, the Stags found the net once more.

 

Khan found Davies, who powered home clinically to bag his first goal since returning from a lengthy injury lay-off.

 

Tyrese Sinclair then came close to notching Stags’ third as, following a flowing forward move, he saw his low shot pushed wide by the diving Kelsey.

 

The Stags, despite the awful conditions, pieced together a wonderful passing move, which concluded with a low effort from Sinclair which was pushed around the post.

 

Soon after, Dales slotted into the far corner from Ryan Colclough’s long pass to reduce the deficit.

 

The Stags, however, held onto secure their first victory of the Central League Cup campaign.
