Well, well, well. Look who’s back at the Fraser this Tuesday.

Mansfield Town return to the Fraser Eagle Stadium on Tuesday evening after the original game was abandoned due to a waterlogged pitch at half time, with the scores tied at 1-1.

The game also see’s a free admittion to the ground for all children under the age of 12. Adults will expect to pay £10, it’s only £5 for concessions.

Accrington Stanley Team News:

John Coleman will go into the game without Andy Tretton, Leighton McGivern, Danny Ventre and captain Peter Cavanagh. Alan Rogers is starting his three match ban after seeing red in the weekend’s 2-1 loss at the hands of Notts County.

Coleman however is boosted by the return of midfielder Jat Harris, who returns to the Stanley squad after a one match ban for picking up five yellow cards.
