Youth preview: Doncaster Rovers vs Stags

28 September 2016

Mansfield Town's under 18s will be aiming to continue their superb league form when they travel to Doncaster Rovers on Saturday morning (11am).

After recording five wins and a draw from their opening six EFL Youth Alliance matches, John Dempster's side will be in high spirits when they take on eighth-placed Doncaster. 

Last Saturday, our under 18s recorded a comprehensive 4-0 victory over Bradford City at Kirklington Road thanks to a brace from striker Ashanti Pryce and goals from striker Zayn Hakeem and winger Nyle Blake.

The clean sheet against the Bantams was incredibly the Stags' fifth of the season - Sam Wilson, the under 18s' goalkeeper, has conceded just one league goal all season, which came in the 3-1 victory over Grimsby Town a fortnight ago. 

Saturday's hosts have suffered three consecutive defeats in the EFL Youth Alliance, with a 4-2 loss away to York City sandwiched between home defeats to Scunthorpe United and Oldham Athletic. 

Rovers did, however, begin the campaign in brilliant fashion with back-to-back victories over Lincoln City and Grimsby Town - the latter being a fantastic 5-1 away victory. 

The match will take place at Cantley Park, Doncaster (11am kick-off) and the address for supporters wishing to attend is as follows:

Doncaster Rovers Training Ground
