Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray says his side are going to Hillsborough to cause a famous cup upset.

Murray’s men travel to Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow night knowing they will have to be at their very best to get past the resurgent Championship side.

The match also throws up a number of selection issue for Murray with Mansfield facing League Two newcomers Notts County in the local derby on Friday night.

Murray said:“It is a game that we are going there to win. It is a difficult one for us because, with playing Friday, we are losing a day of rest.

“The league is our priority this season and it is important we go into the Notts County game fresh.

“We want to give a good account of ourselves and we will show the competition respect.

“We only have a squad of 20 players, but I am happy with that. I know that the young kids can step up when needed.

“I also have the backing in place to bring in people if we start to get injuries. I am not looking to bring any new players in at the moment.”
