Stags draw Walsall or Oldham at home in Checkatrade


Mansfield Town were handed a home Checkatrade Trophy third round tie with Walsall or Oldham Athletic when the draw was made live on Sky Sports this morning.

Stags were first out of the hat and must wait until 13th December when the two League One clubs will settle their second round tie.

After losing their opening home first round group game against Doncaster Rovers, Stags pulled off excellent away wins at Port Vale and Derby County U23s to progress to round two.

Then on Tuesday night, Mansfield came out on top in a thriller at League Two title-chasers Carlisle United as they saw a 2-0 lead evaporate to 2-2 before sub Danny Rose grabbed a spectacular late winner.

The third round ties will be played week commencing 8th January
