Reserves to face Grimsby this afternoon

9 October 2017

Mansfield Town's reserves welcome Grimsby Town reserves to Rainworth Miners Welfare in their next Central League Cup clash on Tuesday afternoon.

The match will kick-off at 1.00pm on Tuesday 10 October and the venue will permit supporters to watch the match.

Stags are again expected to utilise the competition to provide first team players with increased game-time.

Stags' boss Steve Evans said that players who 'weren't involved on Saturday' would be included against the Mariners.

However, defenders Hayden White and Zander Diamond, midfielder Joel Byrom and winger Alfie Potter will all be missing as they continue to recover from their respective injuries.

White (groin) and Potter (calf) are hoping to return to training on Tuesday, whilst Diamond (hamstring) and Byrom (foot) are one to two weeks away from a return.

Stags won their opening Central League Cup fixture with a comfortable 4-0 victory over a youthful Burton Albion side at St George's Park last month.

A first half brace from striker Danny Rose and an excellent strike by midfielder Jacob Mellis put Stags in the driving seat at half-time, before left-back Mal Benning scored the final goal in the second period.

The Mariners have lost their only Central League Cup match of the season so far, falling to a 2-1 defeat away to Notts County last month.

After going ahead through Diallang Jaiyesimi, Grimsby surrendered their lead as goals from Elliot Hodge and Liam Walker turned the tie in Notts' favour.

In their Central League campaign, Grimsby have won one and lost one of their first two fixtures.

They won 3-0 against Hartlepool United, before slipping to a 1-0 defeat against Rotherham United last time out.

Prices for the fixture are as follows:
Adults: £3
Under 16s: £1
