ESPN commentator Jon Champion believes Mansfield Town are the marginal favourites to progress to an FA Cup third round showdown against Liverpool because they have home advantage.

Stags face David Holdsworth’s Lincoln City at the One Call Stadium on Wednesday for a money-spinning third round match against the 18 time English champions in front of the ESPN cameras.

And Champion, who is the channel’s lead football commentator, believes that home advantage could prove to be the difference in what he expects to be ‘a very close match.’
