Reserves preview: Doncaster Rovers vs Stags

17 September 2018

Stags will take a strong squad to Tuesday's reserve fixture against Doncaster Rovers, which kicks off at 1pm at Keepmoat Stadium.

Mansfield's second string kicked off this season's Central League campaign last Tuesday at Basford United Football Club, where they were narrowly beaten 2-1 by Rotherham United.

Despite looking the better side throughout the contest and putting the Millers under pressure late on, Jordan Graham's 84th minute penalty proved to be just a consolation.

Stags' reserves face their first away trip of the campaign on Tuesday against Doncaster Rovers, who won their opening fixture 3-2 away at Grimsby Town last week.

The win elevated Rovers to the summit of the Central League North table, as all three sides that won their opening fixture did so by a solitary goal. Having scored on three occasions in their match, Doncaster sit at the top of the table on goals scored going into Tuesday's clash.

Doncaster placed ninth in last season's Central League North table. The last time Stags faced Tuesday's opponents was back in April, in their penultimate Central League fixture of the 2017-18 campaign.

Forward Jason Law opened the scoring with a thunderous effort in the first-half, yet the points were shared after Robbie Miller's strike saw the game end 1-1.

Entry to tomorrow's game is free for supporters, and the relevant address is as follows: Keepmoat Stadium, Stadium Way, Doncaster, DN4 5JW.

Please note that parking at the stadium is only permitted in car park 2 or on Alick Jeffery Way, as car parks 1 and 3 are for permit holders only. Supporters are asked to enter the ground via the main reception in the West Stand.
