Speaking in a news conference on Tuesday morning at RH Academy, Mansfield manager Nigel Clough provided more information on the game.

“Jason Law could do with a game,” he said.

“I think James Gale [will feature].

“Owen Mason will play.

“Cody Collins is going to come back after injury, him and George Cooper will maybe play 45 [minutes] each.

“In terms of other first-team [players] I don't think we can afford to risk anyone else.”

When asked about the opportunity for some of Stags’ under-19s to test themselves at a senior level, the boss said: “It’s [a] brilliant experience for them.

“We’ve got some good players in there [the Academy] so it's a good test for them.
