Match preview: Stags vs Guiseley

1 December 2017

Mansfield Town host National League side Guiseley in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup on Sunday (2.00pm kick-off) and this is your comprehensive guide to the fixture.

Stags should have a full squad to select from for Sunday's game. 

Striker Lee Angol was named on the bench for Tuesday's friendly against Clipstone, whilst manager Steve Evans said earlier this week that he hopes frontman Kane Hemmings will return to training on Friday after his slight calf strain.

For Guiseley, striker Rowan Liburd is ineligible under the terms of his loan deal, whilst midfielder Alex-Ray Harvey is cup tied after appearing in the competition for former club Barrow. 

Meanwhile, James Wesolowski, Will Hatfield, Elliott Green, Marcus Williams, Danny East and Rob Atkinson are all sidelined through injury. 

Striker John Rooney will be suspended for the tie. 

Stags are currently on a 10-match unbeaten run, which has included six wins and four draws. 

Prior to last week's 2-2 draw with Chesterfield, Stags had won five consecutive games, conceding just one goal in the process. 

Manager Steve Evans' men booked their spot in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup with a 3-1 win over Evo-Stik side Shaw Lane. 

Defender Krystian Pearce put the Stags ahead in the first half, before the Ducks' Lee Bennett equalised before half-time. 

Top scorer Danny Rose then scored an exceptional second half brace to ensure Stags secured safe passage to round two. 

Sunday's visitors have won two of their last six matches - one of which was their penalty shootout victory over Accrington Stanley in their Emirates FA Cup first round replay. 

The shootout win over Stanley showed the Lions' resilience as they saw out more than 70 minutes with 10 men. 

Centre-half Chris M'Boungou received his marching orders in first half stoppage time, before John Rooney cancelled out Sean McConville's opener in the second half. 

Lions' 'keeper Jonny Maxted was then the hero in the shootout, saving two spot-kicks before striker Mike Fondop-Talom dispatched the winning penalty. 

Last time out, Paul Cox's side slipped to a 2-0 defeat at home to Sutton United, who sit second in the National League. 

This will be the first meeting in the two clubs' history. 

Carl Boyeson will be the man in the middle on Sunday, whilst Mark Griffiths and Akil Howson will run the lines. James Oldham will be the fourth official. 

Mr Boyeson last took charge of a Stags' match earlier this season, in our 2-0 win over Forest Green in our first home game of the Sky Bet League Two campaign.
