Kick off 7pm
Martin Shaw at the Vitality Stadium, Dean Court
It’s the third round of the FA Youth Cup.
The Stags U18 youth team are at Premier League AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium Dean Court.
Unless I’m mistaken, I think this is the first time a Stags side has played at a Premier League ground since the FA Cup tie at Newcastle in 2006.
It’s a big night for the Stags youngsters.
The Stags have so far knocked out Grimsby and Chester to get this far.
AFC Bournemouth’s U18 side are unbeaten in 13 games. This is Bournemouth’s first game in the competition this season, as Premier League and Championship clubs come in at round 3. In the league, they sit in second place in the EFL Youth Alliance South West Division.
Mansfield meanwhile are in second place in the EFL Youth Alliance North East Division.
It’s pretty windy down here on the coast today.
Mansfield make one change from the side that started in the last round against Chester. Noah Stokes comes in for Joao Rangel.
We’re expecting a 3-4-1-2 formation as follows:
Jordan Armsden, Jamie Chisholm, Noah Stokes;
Larrell King, Jack Cornell, James Tague, Kian Sketchley;
Jimmy Knowles, Riley O’Sullivan.
Subs: Jamie Boyle, Rio Molyneaux, Nathan Saunders, Joao Rangel, Rhys Sarson.
