Mansfield Town will be ball number 15 in the northern section of tonight’s Carabao Cup second round draw with Stags hoping for a lucrative home tie.

Stags demolished Accrington Stanley 6-1 on Tuesday to book their place in the draw and assistant manager Ben Futcher said: “There are some fantastic potential draws with a lot of Premier League teams coming in now.

“Obviously we want a Premier League side, although a local one against Forest would be fantastic.

“We will wait and see but hopefully it will be a good draw for the football club.

“You want to be at home. We are really enjoying playing here at the minute – anyone at home would be a good draw for us.”

The second round draw takes place from 7pm before the Sunderland v Sheffield Wednesday tie at the Stadium of Light.
