Reserves to face Magpies on Tuesday

14 November 2017

Stags' reserves take on Notts County in the Central League Cup at Rainworth Miners Welfare tomorrow (Tuesday 14 November, 1.00pm kick-off) as we look to extend our unbeaten run in the competition.

We've won our opening two games in the competition and currently sit top of Northern Group 2 with six points and a goal difference of +6.

A brace from striker Danny Rose and efforts from midfielder Jacob Mellis and defender Mal Benning ensured Stags opened their campaign with a 4-0 victory against Burton Albion at St George's Park.

Stags' first home match also ended in victory, with frontman Lee Angol bagging a brace in a 2-0 win against Grimsby Town.

If our second string record a win tomorrow, we will qualify for the semi-finals of the Central League Cup.

The winners from each of the three Northern Groups qualify for the next stage, along with the best runner-up.

Notts County, who sit second in our group with three points from one game, can also qualify for the next round, therefore the tie is finely poised tomorrow.

Stags are expected to field a strong side for the clash at Rainworth, however defender David Mirfin and striker Lee Angol won't be risked as they continue their recoveries from respective hamstring and knee complaints.

Defender Krystian Pearce and midfielder Jacob Mellis, who were both suspended for Saturday's match against Coventry City, could be included, however manager Steve Evans said in his weekly news conference that he would make a decision on the pair's involvement on Monday.

Frontmen Jimmy Spencer and Omari Sterling-James are likely to play a part against the Magpies as the gaffer looks to choose a replacement for top scorer Danny Rose, who is suspended for Saturday's Sky Bet League Two clash with Stevenage.

The fixture will kick-off at 1.00pm at the following venue:
Rainworth Miners Welfare
Kirklington Road
Mansfield
NG21 0JY

Admission prices are as follows:
£3 for all
