Looking forward to the match, Martin Carruthers said:
"We know Stags will bring a side that has a mixture of Under 21 and First Team players and that there will be real quality running through the team.
"Mansfield have a excellent and well deserved reputation for their youth development and the game also gives us a chance to look at some Stags players who may be available on loan later on.
"We will be splitting our teams between this game and Saturday's trip to Hucknall. We want to give first team players game time, but will also be including some trialists.
"Seeing trialists playing alongside first team players gives us a better view of their abilities and shows us what they can do."
