8 October 2019

Stags' boss John Dempster has named his starting XI for this evening's Leasing.com Trophy match against Crewe Alexandra at One Call Stadium.

There is a place in the side for goalkeeper Bobby Olejnik, who has been sidelined since December 2018 with an ACL injury - and more recently a dislocated finger.

Despite being suspended for league matters, defender Matt Preston is eligible to start the match and does so at centre-back.

Young defender James Clarke starts at wing-back, with Alistair Smith and Willem Tomlinson the central midfielders included in the boss' lineup.

Forwards Dapo Afolayan, Andy Cook and Jimmy Knowles lead the line for the Stags.

STAGS' XI: Olejnik (GK), Preston, Shaughnessy, Sweeney, Clarke, Tomlinson, Smith, Hamilton, Afolayan, Cook, Knowles.

SUBS: Stone (GK), Benning, Mellis, Khan, Maynard, Gordon, Sketchley.
