It will be the Stags eighth consecutive League Cup game at Field Mill, following the wins over Stoke and Southampton this season, and defeats in previous seasons against Preston, Sunderland, Derby, Notts County and Southampton.

Home again as Stags land Millwall
MANSFIELD Town are celebrating an amazing eighth successive home draw in the Carling Cup after landing Championship strugglers Millwall at home.
To be confirmed, the game looks set to take place at Field Mill on Tuesday, 25th October.
Curiously Millwall were the opponents at the Mill the last time Stags reached this stage 11 years ago when the visitors won 2-0. That followed a glorious two-leg win over the then top-flight Leeds United.
Already this season Mansfield have knocked out Championship sides Stoke City and Southampton.
