Stags wait to see FA Cup fate

16th October 2017

Mansfield Town will find out on Monday evening who they will face in the First Round of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

Steve Evans' side are ball 26 in the draw with the game to be played on Saturday 4th November, 2017.

Other ball numbers of interest are Notts County (31) and Chesterfield (13) whilst the three lowest ranked clubs left in the competition come from the eighth tier of English football, Hyde United, Ossett Town and Heybridge Swifts.

Evans told Monday's press conference: "Every round of the FA Cup is special - it is the best cup competition in world football.

"I'm very fortunate as a manager I've been to the Fifth Round twice with a non-league club and then a league club, beating a host of Championship clubs on the way and having a glorious day at Manchester United where we should have beaten them.

"That aside, it's just a magical competition, fans here will always remember when the Stags played Liverpool.

"If you're asking me what I would like - first and foremost, a home draw, secondly, who do I want? The lowest ranked team in the competition!

"That doesn't mean we'll beat them because that's the magic of the cup - I've been the lowest ranked team in the Fourth Round of the FA Cup or the Third Round and gone through by a good performance."
