FA Youth Cup preview: Rotherham United vs Stags

15 November 2017

Mansfield Town's under 18s take on Rotherham United in tonight's FA Youth Cup second round tie at the AESSEAL New York Stadium (Wednesday 15 November, 7.00pm kick-off).

Midfielder Sam Jackson booked the Stags' place in the second round of the competition with a stunning effort against Grimsby Town in the first round, securing a 1-0 win at Blundell Park.

The winners of tonight's clash will welcome Premier League side Crystal Palace to their respective home ground in the third round.

The Millers defeated non-league side Bottesford Town in the first round, a match watched by 300 fans at the AESSEAL New York Stadium.

A strong Rotherham side breezed past their non-league opponents, winning 7-0. A brace from Tyrone Lewthwaite and goals from Joshua Kayode, Mitchell Carlton, Reece McGinley, Tom Maguire and Lewis Murr ensured the Millers comfortably progressed to Round Two and set up the meeting with the Stags.

Last season, Stags reached the third round of the competition before bowing out to Category One academy Fulham.

Stags and Rotherham have already met once this season, playing out a 1-1 draw in September.

Defender Lewis Gibbens put the Stags ahead with a powerful header in the first half, before Millers' substitute Lewthwaite equalised for the visitors six minutes from time.

The Millers are currently second in the EFL Youth Alliance, two points above the fifth-placed Stags having played a game more.
