mansfieldtown.net, Mon 12 Aug 2019

Assistant manager Lee Glover has revealed that a strong lineup will be named for Tuesday evening’s first round Carabao Cup clash against Morecambe, with the aim to kick-start a ‘good cup run’ in the competition.

The amber and blue exited last year’s competition at the second round, narrowly losing 2-1 away to Sky Bet Championship side West Brom.

Lee Glover says that the Stags will go with a strong side in Tuesday evening’s first round match, adding that current suspensions and injuries leave space for players to ‘step in’ and ‘do the business.’

“It [Matt Preston and Jacob Mellis suspensions] will give other people a chance. We have other people in the squad who can step in,” he began.

“If they do the business, they stay in the team. If someone comes in and does well, they stay in the team. The manager has made that quite clear.
