Mansfield Town make eight changes for Lincoln City match

Stags boss Paul Cox has made wholesale changes to his starting line-up for today’s FA Cup clash at Lincoln City.

Cox has made eight changes to the side which embarrassingly lost 2-1 to lowly Matlock in the FA Trophy on Tuesday night.

Goalkeeper Shane Redmomnd has kept his place in goal after Alan Marriott was deemed to be not fully fit after beginning his injury comeback in the reserves this week.

Former Stags players Gary Mills and Adam Smith were named in David Holdsworth’s starting 11. Stags legend Colin Larkin was also named on The Imps’ bench.

Lincoln are currently unbeaten in their last six league games, which lead to David Holdsworth being named manager of the month for November.
