Youth preview: Stags vs Burnley (FA Youth Cup)

14 January 2020

Mansfield Town under-18s will be looking to continue their FA Youth Cup heroics when they face Premier League outfit Burnley under-18s at One Call Stadium on Thursday (7pm kick-off).

The amber and blue booked their place in the Fourth Round after a dramatic comeback against Queens Park Rangers last month.

It looked like the Championship side had stolen victory against the run of play, with a late sucker-punch one minute from time.

But the Stags refused to be beaten as Kyle Tomlin equalised with a sensational 40-yard-strike in the fourth minute of added time.

The young guns completed the turn-around inside the opening five minutes of extra-time. An own goal from Kayden Harrack put Mansfield ahead before Jimmy Knowles sealed the victory just two minutes later.

Their opponents booked their trip to Nottinghamshire after a resounding 5-0 win at Curzon Ashton in the last round.

The Clarets go into this clash off the back of three successive victories in league and cup. The most recent of which came at the start of the month, a 3-2 win at Barnsley.

Supporters are welcome to attend the game at the following venue: One Call Stadium, Quarry Lane, Mansfield, NG18 5DA.

Tickets for the match are priced at £3 for adults and £1 for concessions.

Supporters will be housed in the lower tier of the Ian Greaves Stand for the match and tickets are cash only at the turnstiles.

Tea, coffee and refreshments will be available to purchase from Sandy's Bar & Kitchen for the game.
