Under-23s preview: Mansfield Town (A)

9 December 2019

The Iron's Under-23s side make a return to Central League Cup action when they make the trip to take on Mansfield Town this Tuesday (1pm kick-off).

The game will be played at the Radford & Hymas Academy. We will have live text coverage on our Twitter feed, which can be accessed by clicking here, while there will be a report and reaction afterwards.

SCENE-SETTER

The Under-23 side's last game saw them play out a 3-3 home draw against Newcastle United in the Premier League Cup, with on-loan Barnsley striker George Miller scoring a hat-trick.

It was a pleasing performance for Under-23s manager Russ Wilcox, and a number of players who are returning from injury or on the fringes of the first team at the moment may play a part in the fixture. Keep an eye out for team news on our Twitter feed in the hour running up to kick-off.

First team manager Paul Hurst saud Jordan Hallam was nearing a return from a hamstring injury in his press conference last week, while Omar Sanyang (ankle) continues to miss out.

There will be no Under-18s players involved as they're in FA Youth Cup third round action at West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night (7pm kick-off).

LAST LINE-UP (v Newcastle United - 29.11.19)

IRON: Kelsey, Rowe, Butroid (O’Malley, 66), Sutton, Cummings, Bedeau, Colclough, Pugh (Hornshaw, 86), Miller, McAtee, Dales (Jessop, 86).
