Match Preview: Mansfield Town vs. Cardiff City (FA Cup R3 Replay)

The Bluebirds travel to One Call Stadium on Tuesday evening…

15 January 2018

Cardiff City make the trip to Mansfield Town after the Stags held City to a goalless draw in the Welsh capital.

Mansfield were involved in another goalless encounter at the weekend, this time against Cambridge United, but they do remain in the Sky Bet League Two Play-Off positions on goal difference.

Mansfield’s Emirates FA Cup history…

In 1969, the Stags provided one of the shocks of the competition as they dispatched West Ham United, who at the time were sixth in the old First Division.

Coming from behind in the Fourth Round, they defeated Southend to set up the glamourous tie at Field Mill. With a Hammers side full of quality, including the likes of Sir Bobby Moore, Martin Peters and Sir Geoff Hurst, the tie was postponed five times before Mansfield eventually provided an upset with a 3-0 win.

The Stags became only the fourth team in history to knock out clubs from five different leagues in the same competition - eventually progressing to the quarter finals, losing out to Leicester City.

Steve Evans and the FA Cup…

The Fifth Round is the furthest the 52-year-old has ever reached in the competition, achieving this during the 2011/12 season whilst in charge of Crawley Town – who were in the Conference National League at the time.

Evans defeated Swindon Town, Torquay United and Derby County before being drawn in a dream tie away at Manchester United, which they narrowly lost 1-0.

He also reached the Fifth Round with Leeds United in 2015/16. However, a defeat by the same scoreline to Watford following a Scott Wootton own goal saw the Hornets go through to the quarter finals.

What the Gaffer has to say…

Speaking after City's 4-0 win over Sunderland on Saturday afternoon, Neil Warnock revealed that he's looking forward to Tuesday evening's encounter.

“We want to win the tie," said the City boss. "We had very few options in the first game, and the team we went with was the strongest I could have picked in the circumstances.

“We know – even with a full team – that Mansfield are quite capable of beating us so it’ll be a tough game. The atmosphere will be very good, it’ll be a full house and I’ve had some great battles up there.”

Match Report: Mansfield Town 1-4 Cardiff City

Bluebirds progress to face Manchester City at CCS…

16 January 2018

Cardiff City defeated Mansfield Town by four goals to one to progress to the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round, where they will host Manchester City.

Neil Warnock made two changes for the tie, as Anthony Pilkington and Loïc Damour came into the starting eleven.

The Bluebirds’ first opportunity came after 15 minutes, when Callum Paterson lofted a ball towards Kenneth Zohore who went through on goal, although his first touch was gathered by Conrad Logan.

City came close again through Junior Hoilett three minutes later, when his finesse shot from the left edge of the area was acrobatically tipped wide by Logan. 

Anthony Pilkington drilled an effort from 30 yards just wide of the right post as Warnock’s men continued to press for the opener.

The Stags had a great chance after 26 minutes though, when Mal Benning received the ball inside the area from a free-kick, but skied his shot due to pressure from Bruno Ecuele Manga.

After 34 minutes, The Bluebirds’ broke the deadlock, when a Joe Ralls corner was floated in towards Sean Morrison. His shot was parried by Logan towards Ecuele Manga, who slotted home.

However, just two minutes later, the home side equalised through a Danny Rose strike from ten yards.

In to the second half, and the Bluebirds came agonisingly close when Paterson’s low cross towards Zohore was intercepted by Krystian Pearce. But one minute later, City did regain the lead as Hoilett diverted the ball into the net from close range.

City added to their advantage five minutes later, when Pilkington pounced on a poor clearance from the home defence to fire into the bottom left corner of the net with a first-time effort.

And the Bluebirds dominated the remainder of the affair before scoring a fourth with two minutes to play. Hoilett secured a brace with a well-struck effort from just outside the area.

The referee blew his whistle after the three minutes of added time, and City sealed their place in the Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round, where they will host Manchester City.
