Stags FA Cup replay preparations disrupted

Stags’ preparations for the replay were handed a double blow. A sickness virus sweeping Field Mill forced out leading scorer Green, as well as preventing manager Cox and reserve keeper Redmond from making the trip.

The Stags also had to miss out on a pre-match meal after long delays on the M6, which left many fans unable to make kick-off.

Moult replaced Green, the only change from Saturday’s draw, with a place on the bench for long-term injury victim Thompson - one of just six substitutes.

STAGS: Marriott; Sutton, Riley, Futcher, O’Neill; Bolland, Murray, Howell; Dyer, Moult, Meikle. Subs: Somes, Connor, Bell, Todd, Day, Thompson.
