Mansfield Town Match Preview

29 November 2019

Marcus Braddock looks ahead to the Emirates FA Cup second round

It's time for the F.A. Cup again with Shrewsbury Town facing Mansfield at Montgomery Waters Meadow in round 2 tomorrow. The Stags are currently sitting in 15th position in League Two with 21 points from 19 games so far this season. Recent form has seen them struggle a little in the league but their last two cup games both ended in victory. One was their first-round game with Chorley, which ended 0-0, and the other was a 2-1 away victory at Burton in the Leasing.com Trophy. So they've beaten a higher league team away in a cup game and also have better form in away games generally this season which suggests to me that they could be a handful this weekend with a potential Premier League team in the third round at stake.

Threats

Top Scorers Danny Rose and Nicky Maynard have managed seven and six goals from the league campaign and have both scored a goal each in the cup competitions with Maynard scoring the goal that booked their place in round two. Andy Cook has three in the league and three in cup games so there are plenty of forward options for the stags.

Midfielder Otis Khan has the most assists so far Mansfield with three and CJ Hamilton is one behind with 2, as is Conor Shaughnessy. Mansfield also have nine players with a single assist so far which means there are plenty of threats throughout the team.

Clean Sheets

In League Two, Mansfield has managed five clean sheets with three from away games. They've also not conceded in the F.A. Cup this season although they've only played once.

Referee

Andy Haines from Tyne and Wear. Mr Haynes is an experienced official after a number of years officiating in the Football League. It's his first game in charge of Town this season but he was in charge last season When Scunthorpe beat us1-0 away and when Wycombe beat us 3-2 away. He's been in charge of Mansfield Town once this season when they beat Walsall 2-1 away. So far this season, Mr Haines has given 49 yellow and three red cards in 18 games.

Team News

Stags-Top scorer Danny Rose is likely to miss out because of a hamstring injury.

Town-Shaun Whalley and Sean Goss are still out of contention, as is Romaine Vincelot.

Pre-match Press

Sam Ricketts has highlighted the fight back against Bristol last weekend as a positive but also wants to see less “cheap goals” conceded.

Summary

The cup is a double-edged sword for teams like Town. The opportunity to take down a higher division team in the next round is what we want but we need to avoid the same happening to us to earn that chance. Mansfield are no mugs, they may be lower in their division than they want to be but they're in a transitional period with Stags manager, John Dempster still a relatively new appointment. A decent result against a team a division above them could really kick-start their season and Dempster is likely to be more than aware to that possibility.

COYB!!!

Josh Laurent and Brad Walker were both on the scoresheet for Town as Salop secured a spot in the third-round of the FA Cup.

Despite going a man down with the majority of the second-half to play, Town battled it out to beat Mansfield Town 2-0 with both goals coming within the last five minutes.

First Half:

Town’s second-round FA Cup tie with Mansfield Town got off to a bright and energetic start, with both teams having chances at goal. The magic of the cup was not lost on this tie, as both sides were attacking the opposition at will.

Sam Ricketts’ men came inches away from taking the lead just after the 10-minute mark. A well-worked corner saw Dave Edwards find Aaron Pierre at the back post, which nearly resulted in Town taking the lead through the defender's headed effort – only to be denied by a goal-line clearance from the Stags.

In the 18th minute, the Stags received their first yellow card of the game. Conor Shaughnessy was the man named in the referee’s book for a challenge on Edwards.

Scott Golbourne was also booked early on in the half for a miss-timed challenge on Kellan Gordon.

As the minutes ticked towards the halfway stage, both teams were still trying to find that final ball to create a clear scoring opportunity. However, Ollie Norburn was a continual bright spark for his team in the middle of the park. The midfielder dispatched a number of dangerous passes, as well as being defensively solid for his team.

Matt Preston was the next player to receive a yellow card. The Stags defender was booked for preventing Pierre from breaking on the counter-attack.

In a game that was littered with bookings, Pierre also found himself in the referee’s book for a foul in the middle of the pitch.

Town nearly found the breakthrough with just five minutes left to go in the first-half. Donald Love did well to find space on the right-wing, but the defender couldn’t find Jason Cummings with his driven cross.

The half came to an end with neither team able to notch the go-ahead goal.

Second Half:

It didn’t take long for the Shrews to generate an attempt at goal as the second-half commenced. Town displayed clear attacking intent and were pressing forward with every opportunity. Fejiri Okenabirhie found himself in a yard of space just inside the Stags’ box but his powerful effort was well saved by Conrad Logan.

A brilliant defensive block by Ro-Shaun Williams in the 56th minute saved Town from going a goal down in the tie. A great driven cross fell at the feet of Kellen Gordon but his shot was well blocked by the Town defender who managed to knock the ball out for a corner.

Despite a good start to the second-half, Town were faced with an uphill battle as referee Andy Haines brandish a straight red card to Ollie Norburn for an incident in the centre-circle.

Town did manage to find the back of the net in the 67th minute through Okenabirhie, but to the disappointment of the Town forward, the flag was raised for offside.

Donald Love had a golden opportunity to fire his team into the lead with less than 15-minutes to go. The defender did well to find space inside the Stags’ box but couldn’t convert his first-time effort into a goal.

Town finally broke the deadlock in the latter stages of the game through Josh Laurent. Great play between Daniel Udoh and Laurent saw the ball deflect off a Stags defender and into the path of the midfielder. Laurent didn’t need a second invitation and poked home the ball for his team with only four minutes left on the clock.

Town’s confidence went up a notch when Laurent put his side in the lead, and it wasn’t long before the Shrews notched a second. Udoh’s brilliant run from midfield saw Brad Walker receive the ball in the opposition box, and with sublime calmness, the midfielder took the ball around the keeper and slotted home to secure the win for his side.

The game came to an end with Town taking the win and securing a spot in the FA Cup third-round.
