It was all-change again by Mansfield Town manager Adam Murray tonight as he went 3-4-3, his third different formation, for tonight’s FA Cup second round replay with Cambridge United.

He was forced into three changes with loanees Keiron Freeman, Junior Brown and Dimitar Evtimov not permitted to play.

Also left out were Reggie Lambe and Fergus Bell, both dropped to the bench.

In came Sascha Studer, Rakish Bingham, Lee Beevers, Rob Taylor and Ollie Palmer, Bingham and Palmer flanking Oliver up front with Beevers and Taylor wide in a midfield four.

A home clash with Bury or Luton awaited the winners of the replay.
