Youth preview: Scunthorpe United vs Stags

15 August 2018

Stags under-18s’ next league game sees them face Scunthorpe United under-18s at Appleby Frodingham FC this Friday (1pm kick-off).

Mansfield come into the game full of confidence following their comfortable 3-0 victory over Burton Albion last Friday.

Jimmy Knowles, Kamen Cashmore and Tyrese Sinclair were all on the scoresheet for the amber and blue in an impressive display that saw them run-out comfortable winners.

After the opening two games, John Dempster’s side find themselves top of the league table, although the manager will be keen to ensure that his team remain fully focused on the match at hand.

Scunthorpe United will be in search of their first points of the new campaign following defeat to Chesterfield on the opening day and a 3-1 loss to Hartlepool United last time out.

The Iron find themselves bottom of the league table due to their inferior goal difference. They have the worst defensive record in the league so far, shipping a total of seven goals from their opening two fixtures.

There could very likely be a few goals in this one, and it will be John Dempster’s side who will be hoping they can capitalise on any weaknesses in the opposition’s defence.

As always, supporters are welcome to attend the game, see the full address below for details: Appleby Frodingham FC, Brumby Hall, DN16 1AA.
