Reserves preview: Stags vs Peterborough

11 December 2018

Stags' reserves will begin their Central League Cup campaign against Peterborough United this afternoon at the RH Academy (2pm kick-off), with free entry for supporters.

Stags' reserves are yet to play a Central League Cup fixture this season, despite today's visitors having already played twice in the competition.

Mansfield's second string are included in the North Central Group, alongside Peterborough, Doncaster Rovers, Notts County and Rotherham United.

The Stags went all the way in last year's competition, beating Wigan Athletic 3-0 in the final.

In this year's Central League Cup, the winner from each of the four groups (North, North Central, South, South Central) will progress to the next round of the contest.

The winners of each group will face each other in a regionalised semi-final, with the winner of North facing North Central, and South coming up against South Central.

The victors of each of the regional semi-finals will face each other in the national final.

Despite being at least one game behind the other teams in North Central due to a postponed fixture against Doncaster, the Stags will soon catch up on their Central League Cup fixtures, with tomorrow's game starting a run of three cup matches in ten days.

The squad for the match against Peterborough is as follows: Sam Wilson, Warren Squires, Aiden Walker, Kane Baldwin, Lewis Gibbens, Teddy Bloor, Nyle Blake, Jason Law, Cameron Healey, Harry Bircumshaw, Keaton Ward, Tom Fielding, Omari Sterling-James, Jordan Graham, Iyrwah Gooden, Isaac Fisher.

For supporters wishing to attend the match, the address for the RH Academy is as follows: The RH Academy (3G Pitch), Woburn Lane, Mansfield, Notts, NG19 7RT.
