Emirates FA Cup Preview: Cardiff City vs. Mansfield Town

The Bluebirds host the Stags in the Third Round...

5 January 2018

Cardiff City return to Cardiff City Stadium this Saturday as they host League Two play-off hopefuls Mansfield Town in the Emirates FA Cup.

Steve Evans’ side make the trip to the Welsh capital off the back of a 3-1 win against Carlisle United on New Year’s Day.

What to expect from the Stags…

Mansfield’s Emirates FA Cup journey started in November, as they defeated Shaw Lane FC in the First Round before defeating Guiseley a month later.

The Stags compete in Sky Bet League Two, currently occupying sixth place, and are five games unbeaten following that victory over Carlisle.

Striker Danny Rose has been the standout performer for his side thus far, scoring 12 goals in all competitions. The 24 year-old netted twice in that win over Shaw Lane, and also played a part in victory over Guiseley.

Oxford United loanee Kane Hemmings is another who has hit the ground running since his move in the summer transfer window. The 26 year-old currently has seven goals to his name from the 18 appearances he has made – sitting just behind Rose in the Mansfield goal-scoring charts.

In the hot seat…

Steve Evans is currently in charge of his sixth team since retiring from playing in 1986. The 55 year-old took the reins at Mansfield after departing from Leeds United in November 2016.

Playing the majority of his football in Scotland, he scored 42 goals in 168 appearances as a striker, with the majority of those coming for Albion Rovers.

Previous meetings…

Simon Haworth wins a battle in a 3-1 Division Three win over the Stags, 8th March 1997.

The Bluebirds have won the last two meetings against Saturday’s opponents, both by a 1-0 scoreline. The latest came in Division Two back in March 2003, as Robert Earnshaw netted in the second half to secure victory at Ninian Park.

The two sides have never met in the Emirates FA Cup before, but have come up against each other on four occasions in the League Cup – with City twice progressing over two legs.

Club connections…

Liam Lawrence started his career with the Stags, before making the move to Sunderland in 2004. Eight years later he joined the Bluebirds on a loan spell from Portsmouth, making 13 appearances and scoring on one occasion.

Solomon Taiwo – now with Bishop’s Stortford - and Lee Bullock, who is a player manager at Whitby Town, have also both represented City and Mansfield in their careers.

Match Report: Cardiff City 0-0 Mansfield Town

City will compete in a Third Round replay with the Stags...

6 January 2018

Cardiff City were held to a goalless draw in the Emirates FA Cup Third Round at Cardiff City Stadium on Saturday 6th January.

The Bluebirds made five changes for the tie, with Sean Morrison, Jazz Richards, Lee Tomlin, Greg Halford and Nathaniel Mendez-Laing all coming into the starting eleven for the fixture in the Welsh capital.

City started on the front foot, and Tomlin was first to try his luck. Good work in the build-up saw the ball drop to the 28 year-old on the edge of the Mansfield penalty area, but his drilled effort skimmed wide of the far post.

More Bluebirds pressure continued throughout the half, and City registered their first shot on target through Callum Paterson. The Scot dropped a shoulder in the middle of the park and travelled 10 yards before seeing his deflected attempt pushed away by Conrad Logan in the Mansfield goal.

Five minutes before half-time Healey stung the palms of the Stags ‘keeper. Some good pressure saw City win the ball in the Mansfield half, before Healey’s effort was pushed wide. Tomlin’s resulting corner was headed straight into Logan’s arms by Morrison, who made a strong return from injury.

In first half stoppage time, C.J. Hamilton headed high over Brian Murphy’s crossbar, before Mendez-Laing’s effort was kept out at the other end as the Bluebirds looked to break the deadlock.

Five minutes after the interval City were inches away from taking the lead. Tomlin played a short corner to Joe Bennett, who’s cross was headed just wide by Paterson, with Logan scrambling.

The Stags had their own chance to go ahead a few minutes later though, as Alfie Potter’s curling effort from the edge of the box drifted just wide.

Warnock’s men soon stamped further authority on the tie, and after winning a free-kick on the left, the ball dropped to Healey, who rifled over.

Murphy came to Cardiff’s rescue with half an hour to go, as a low cross found it’s way to Lee Angol, whose effort from point blank range was brilliantly thwarted.

Healey was again involved as City turned up a gear, with a through ball from Paterson finding the 23 year-old, but the Mansfield defence managed to block his goal-bound effort away.

Hamilton was Mansfield’s main threat down the left-hand side and he tested Murphy with a near post drive, but the Irish stopper was equal to it, before Paul Anderson’s effort from the edge of the box was well blocked by Bruno Ecuele Manga.

City took the game to their opponents in the final minutes, as Tomlin found space on the edge of the area, and struck a strong effort that Logan pushed away – but the tie remained a stalemate and City will travel to Field Mill for a Third Round replay on the week commencing Monday 15th January, 2018.

Cardiff City: Murphy, Bennett, Morrison (Damour, 74’), Ecuele Manga, Richards, Tomlin, Zohore (Pilkington, 80’), Halford, Paterson, Mendez-Laing, Healey (Hoilett, 77’)

Subs not used: Etheridge, Feeney, Bogle, M.Harris.
