Saturday morning signing Taiwo makes Mansfield Town debut at Cambridge

NEW Stags midfielder Soloman Taiwo was given a debut as Paul Cox reverted to a 4-3-3 formation at Cambridge United this afternoon.

The 6ft 1ins midfielder, a free agent, has been at a number of non-League clubs but once signed for Cardiff City in a £250,000 deal and has recently impressed in a couple of Mansfield reserves outings.

Matt Green, inevitably, made a return after completing his three-game suspension.

Out of the side went Junior Daniel and Nick Wright.

CAMBRIDGE: Hedge, Coulson, Shaw, Gash, Elliott, McAuley, Jarvis, Berry, Thorpe, Willmott, Andrew. Subs: Wylde, Wellard, Pugh, Moke, Ross.

STAGS: Redmond; Thompson, Geohaghon, Pilkington, Sutton; Howell, Murray, Taiwo; Speight, Green, Meikle. Subs: Rhead, Briscoe, Daniel, Tafazolli, Clements.

REFEREE: Kevin Johnson of Weston-super-Mare.
