Preston North End begin their Carabao Cup campaign on Tuesday night with a trip to League Two side Mansfield Town.

Frankie To Have Forwards Back Available For Mansfield

9 August 2021

Declan Rudd will be absent, though, as he recovers from a concussion injury which forced him off in the early stages of Saturday’s game.

Other than that, the squad came through the Championship opener unscathed and Frankie will have the majority of his team available to choose from.

The Opposition

After a positive pre-season which included victories over Championship sides Hull City and Coventry City, Mansfield got three points from their opening game of the League Two season on Saturday.

It was a 96th-minute penalty which gave them the win over Joey Barton’s Bristol Rovers, with Danny Johnson slotting home and sending the returning crowd behind the goal into raptures.

Both the Stags and their opposition last weekend are tipped to be up towards the top end of the division, so the win gave them a good platform to build on.

Key Stats

In recent meetings, PNE have defended admirably when coming up against the side from Nottinghamshire, going the last five games without conceding a goal.

The Lilywhites have also scored 15 times in those matches, too, with 4-0 being the outcome of the last two encounters.

A famous meeting between the two came in 1995, when North End hosted the Stags at Deepdale and came out 6-0 winners, with the lethal strike force of Andy Saville and Steve Wilkinson both bagging a hat-trick.

9 August 2021

Mansfield came to PR1 just short of 12 months ago after being drawn against Alex Neil’s PNE in the first round of the 2020/21 Carabao Cup.

That fixture actually took place before the start of the league term, with both clubs agreeing to play the game as part of their pre-season preparations.

As previously mentioned, North End came out 4-0 winners and had four different scorers on the day, with Tom Barkhuizen, Sean Maguire, Patrick Bauer and Josh Harrop all finding the back of the net.

Man In The Middle


Not only are these sides meeting each other at the same stage of the same competition as last season, but the man in the middle on that day will again take charge.

That game last year was only Ross Joyce's second time overseeing a North End match, the first being the 6-0 victory over Barnet in the FA Cup in 2013, in which Paul Gallagher scored a hat-trick.

Match Report: Mansfield Town 0 PNE 3

10 August 2021

PNE progressed to the second round of the Carabao Cup with a 3-0 victory over League Two side Mansfield Town.

The Lilywhites headed into half-time with a one-goal lead courtesy of Scott Sinclair’s opener just before the break.

North End then took the game away from the hosts in the second half, as substitute Emil Riis doubled the lead and Sinclair got his second of the game.

One of seven changes to Frankie McAvoy’s line-up from the weekend saw Daniel Iversen start and he was tested early, with Rhys Oates taking on an effort inside three minutes, but the Dane kept it out diving to his left.

North End had a big chance 13 minutes into the game, as a lovely pass by Maguire sent Sinclair into the area and he was frustrated by goalkeeper Nathan Bishop, who saved well with his legs.

While still a competitive game, chances over the next 20 minutes or so were at a premium, with Brad Potts sending a speculative effort over the bar from 30 yards before Jordan Storey then saw his header comfortably caught by the ‘keeper.

Rhys Oates then came close for the Stags on 36 minutes, with the forward showing nice feet to make space for himself, but he sent his effort across goal and wide.

Just a few moments after Iversen was required to keep out Ryan Stirk’s effort at one end, North End went down the other to open the scoring. Maguire sent Sinclair through on goal and, despite looking like the angle was against him, Scotty chipped the ball over the ‘keeper and into the back of the net.

The two sides came out unchanged after half-time and most of the football was being played in the middle of the pitch, with North End managing to keep the ball for large periods, prompting ‘oles’ from the away end.

PNE were forced to do some defending on 63 minutes, though, as Jordan Storey made sure a dangerous cross into the near post from the right didn’t find Bowery just six yards out.

Just short of ten minutes later, the Lilywhites doubled their lead courtesy of Riis, who picked up the pieces after Sinclair saw his effort excellently saved following a poor goal-kick from the ‘keeper. His parry came out into a dangerous area and, after working hard to pinch the ball from the defender, the Dane superbly found the top corner.

North End almost had a phenomenal third soon afterwards, with Potts seeing his audacious scissor kick smash against the post.

They weren’t made to wait too much longer for that third, though, as Ben Whiteman fed Sinclair with a superb pass into the box and the forward showed his class to take the ball in, turn and calmly slot home to seal the win.

There was then chance for Frankie McAvoy to hand Joe Rodwell-Grant his senior debut for his boyhood club, while Jamie Thomas made his competitive bow for his new side.

PNE line-up: Iversen; Storey, Bauer, Hughes; van den Berg, Whiteman, Johnson, Potts (Thomas, 83), Cunningham; Maguire (Riis, 67), Sinclair (Rodwell-Grant, 82).

Subs not used: Ripley, Harrop, Rafferty, Earl.

Mansfield line-up: Bishop; Gordon, Rawson, McLaughlin, Burke; Clarke (Johnson, 80), Maris (Law, 74), Stirk, Lapslie; Oates (Sinclair, 65), Bowery.

Subs not used: Shelvey, Hawkins, Perch, Clarke.

Attendance: 2,526 (486 PNE fans)
