Stags unchanged for big cup replay with Lincoln

MANSFIELD Town, unsurprisingly, were unchanged for tonight’s massive FA Cup second round home replay with neighbours Lincoln City.

Both sides warmed up in style for the tie, being televised live by ESPN, by scoring four goals in weekend victories.

City, managed by ex-Stags boss David Holdsworth, included former Mansfield players Gary Mills and Adam Smith plus locally-born Dan Gray in their starting line-up with ex-Stags striker Colin Larkin on the bench.

The match beat the big freeze thanks to a hot air tent on the pitch and covers overnight.

STAGS: Marriott; Thompson, Geohaghon, Dempster, Beevers; Briscoe, Howell, Clements, Meikle; Hutchinson, Green. Subs: Sutton, Speight, Wright, Rhead, Murray, Stevenson, Daniel.
LINCOLN: Farman, Mills, Boyce, Smith, Power, Taylor, Sheridan, Gray, Miller, Gilbert, Mofana. Subs: Robson, Oliver, Nicolau, Turner, Larkin, Morgan, Robinson.
