The sides replay at Stanley tomorrow after Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Guiseley’s Nethermoor Park with the winners set to travel to One Call Stadium next month following tonight’s draw.

If Stanley prevail against the ambitious non-Leaguers tomorrow it means the Stags will be up against their jinx side of recent seasons.

Mansfield’s 2-1 defeat at Accrington in August was the 12th game in a row they have failed to win against a Stanley side currently flying high in second place in League Two with Stags back in 14th.

Mansfield progressed to round two thanks to overcoming last Saturday’s potential banana skin with a 3-1 win at Northern Premier League club Shaw Lane, thanks to a second half Danny Rose double.

The second round ties will be played over the weekend of 2nd December.
