Mansfield’s cup tie against Doncaster provides an opportunity to use some periphery players and youngsters. It’s not worth putting some of their key players at risk of injury.

Lewis Brunt, Finn Flanagan, McKeal Abdullah, and James Gale will regard the match against Grant McCann’s men as an opportunity to demonstrate their abilities.

As they seek promotion to League One, the Stags’ primary focus will be on the league. They almost missed out in the playoffs last season.

Mansfield are currently in fifth place after the first 12 games. They now have 20 points after a tie against Wimbledon last Saturday.

On goal differential, they are in the top seven and two points out of the top three. Clough’s squad hasn’t lost yet this season, but they have drawn eight times, so they’ll need to start turning those draws into wins to keep up with the top teams.

Akins, Keillor-Dunn, and Reed are all crucial players for Nottinghamshire, and they will be fit and ready for the weekend showdown against Notts County after sitting out against Doncaster.
