Mansfield Town's under 18s will look to get back to winning ways when they travel to Lincoln City this Saturday (11am).
Stags have suffered three successive defeats after slipping to an injury-time loss against Hartlepool United before Rotherham United came from behind to win 2-1 six days later.
As John Dempster's young side aimed to progress in the EFL Youth Alliance Cup last week, Walsall stood in their way to inflict a 2-0 defeat to send them crashing out of the competition.
However, the under 18s still sit top of the EFL Youth Alliance North East division, despite local rivals Notts County possessing a game in hand.
The Imps have suffered a difficult first quarter of the campaign as they sit third-bottom of the league. Their last league match, against Chesterfield a fortnight ago, ended in a 6-2 victory for the Lincolnshire side, which was only their second victory of the campaign.
Despite Dempter's men being without a win in three, nine of his squad played a part in the under 21s' narrow defeat to Shrewsbury Town in the Central League Cup and they all contributed to an impressive performance.
The match will take place at the following venue and entry is free of charge:
