Reserves Preview: Stags vs Rotherham United

3 April 2018

Stags' reserves take on Rotherham United reserves today (1:00pm kick-off), and a strong squad has been called up for the game. Here's all you need to know ahead of the clash...

Several first-team names have been called up to feature in the match, including the three substitutes from Monday's 2-1 loss to Luton Town in Sky Bet League Two - Alfie Potter, Paul Anderson and Ricky Miller.

Mal Benning, who is suspended from first-team action due to his red card against Accrington Stanley, is also set to play, with Jimmy Spencer, Krystian Pearce and Joel Byrom being called up as well.

The match was originally set to be played at Rainworth, but a waterlogged pitch means the fixture has been moved to Brooksy Melton College, Melton Mowbray.

Last time out, the reserves recorded a dramatic 5-3 win against Grimsby Town reserves, after finding themselves 3-1 down early in the second-half.

Two goals from Lewis Gibbens, and strikes from Jason Law, Aiden Walker and Rhys Sarson meant that Stags recorded an emphatic comeback that kept them at the summit of the Central League North B table.

Stags' reserves stand five points above today's opponents in the table, having also played three games less. 

The starting XI is likely to be: Olejnik; Digby, Pearce, Thomas, Benning; Potter, King, Byrom, Anderson; Spencer, Miller.

Keaton Ward, Lewis Gibbens, Jordan Graham, Jason Law and Alistair Smith have also been named in the squad.
