Preview: Burton Albion vs Stags ( Trophy)

11 November 2019

Next up for the Stags is a trip to face Burton Albion on Tuesday 12 November in the Trophy (7.45pm). Here’s all you need to know ahead of the clash…


Manager John Dempster has delivered some team news ahead of the clash, saying: "We'll be putting a strong side out against Burton. We know if we win the game, we go through, which would be good.

"It gives us more games going forward, which is a good thing for players that maybe haven't had enough game time.

"The likes of Danny Rose will play [against Burton], CJ Hamilton, Jacob Mellis, so I think it will be a good game of football.

"We've had some good bouts with Burton in the past, and we're looking forward to it."

The match will likely come too soon for defenders Hayden White and Krystian Pearce.

The Brewers will be without the trio of Kieran O’Hara, Liam Boyce and Nathan Broadhead, who have all been called up for international duty.

Last time out, the Stags recorded a 1-0 victory at home to Chorley to book their place in the second round of the Emirates FA Cup. Frontman Nicky Maynard scored the game’s only goal ten minutes from time.

In the Trophy, two penalty shootout defeats to Everton under-21s and Crewe Alexandra see the Stags at the foot of the Group E table. However, a victory against the Brewers on Tuesday evening will see them progress to the next stage of the competition.

Burton earned an Emirates FA Cup replay on Saturday, drawing 1-1 away at Salford, with Scott Fraser on target for Nigel Clough’s men.

Victory over the Stags on Tuesday evening, by way of a win in regular time or via a penalty shootout, will see the Brewers advance to the knockout stages of the Trophy.

We last faced the Brewers in a Sky Bet League Two clash in January 2015, with the Brewers running out 2-1 winners at Pirelli Stadium.

Matt Palmer and Kelvin Maynard netted for the hosts, with the Stags pulling a goal back through Reggie Lambe in the second-half.


The referee for Tuesday’s clash will be Leigh Doughty, assisted by Abbas Khan and Ollie Williams. The fourth official will be Elliott Swallow.
