Mansfield Town began tonight’s home pre-season friendly with Premier League Hull City with an unnamed trialist in the side and another on the bench.
The game was expected to start in high temperatures after a day on which the mercury rose over 30 degrees for the hottest day of the year so far.
Hull boss Steve Bruce began the evening with an on-pitch TV interview after informal talks about taking over the vacant England job.
Despite a handful of injuries, he still named a strong side to take on the Stags.
Starting line-ups were:
STAGS: Jensen, Bennett, Collins, Pearce, Chapman, Hoban, Baxendale, Hurst, Mitch Rose, CJ Hamilton, Trialist.
HULL: Kuciak, Robertson, Davies, Huddlestone, Snodgrass, Clucas, Maloney, Diame, Dawson, Luer, Elmohamdey.
REFEREE: Darren England.
