PREVIEW | Mansfield Town vs Wrexham AFC

Red Dragons enter FA Cup action

3 November 2023

Phil Parkinson’s men hit the road again this weekend with a break from league action as attention turns to the Emirates FA Cup.

It’s the first time the Club has entered at this stage of the competition since 2007 and take on familiar opposition in Mansfield Town.

The two clubs met earlier last month in Sky Bet League Two and played out a goalless draw at the One Call Stadium.

The Red Dragons reached round four of the competition last season, while the Stags bowed out in the second round proper.

In an evening kick-off in Nottinghamshire, the game will be broadcast live on S4C and ESPN+ worldwide.


Elliot Lee and Ollie Palmer capped off a superb victory against Notts County at Meadow Lane as the Red Dragons extended their unbeaten run in Sky Bet League Two.

It was always going to be a tightly-contested affair with a clash of styles by last season’s record-breaking National League promotion winners.

Now in the EFL, they have both had success so far this season with both clubs in second and third place respectively.

Arthur Okonkwo was forced into making several smart stops in the first half, with Macaulay Langstaff being denied from a close-range header.

The Red Dragons were dealt three key blows in the build-up as Ryan Barnett and Eoghan O’Connell were out injured, and Jordan Tunnicliffe got injured in the warm-up.

However, the back five defended resolutely and stopped the Magpies’ attack in their tracks.

The game was decided in a matter of minutes in the second half, with Elliot Lee’s deflected strike looping over Sam Slocombe, and Ollie Palmer finishing smartly into the bottom corner to wrap up the victory.

It was a hard-fought battling performance, but one which galvanised the travelling fans and secured an important win.


Nigel Clough’s men have started this season in fine form, and they remain unbeaten in Sky Bet League Two.

They fell to their first defeat of the season in all competitions in midweek with a 1-0 defeat in the Carabao Cup to Port Vale.

Their top goalscorer, former Red Davis Keillor-Dunn, has bagged eight so far this season and remains a constant threat in the final third.

The ex-Wrexham man is a danger alongside Josh Maris, and Lucas Akins also poses a big goalscoring threat .

They have picked up plenty of impressive results in the league so far, including a 3-2 victory against Stockport County where Keillor-Dunn scored twice.

After defeat in midweek, Nigel Clough spoke to the press and explained he hopes his side can bounce back immediately tomorrow night.

He said: “The most important thing now is to quickly put this behind us. We mustn't dwell on it. We need to get ready for Wrexham on Saturday now and do everything we can to get through in the FA Cup.”


In the United Kingdom, the fixture will be played out live on S4C at 19:45 GMT and around the globe on ESPN+.

The game will be broadcast with Welsh and English-language commentary on S4C, which is available on channels 4 and 104 in Wales, as well as Sky 134, Freesat 120 and Virgin TV 164 in the rest of the UK. English commentary can be selected by pressing the red button or using the audio selection option.

Existing iFollow Wrexham passholders can tune into audio coverage live, but please note due to FA Cup competition rules no video coverage will be available. 

No match passes will also be available for this fixture.

REPORT | Mansfield Town 1-2 Wrexham AFC

Red Dragons progress to the Second Round of the Emirates FA Cup

4 November 2023

Goals from Sam Dalby and Paul Mullin guided Wrexham through to the Emirates FA Cup Second Round, with victory away to Mansfield at a soggy One Call Stadium.

Dalby opened the scoring with a powerful finish in the first-half, and Mullin guided a fine shot beyond the hugely impressive Christy Pym to double the advantage.

Rhys Oates pulled a goal back to set up a nerve-wracking finale for the away fans as the rain continued to fall in Nottinghamshire, but the Red Dragons stood firm to put their name in the Second Round draw.

Phil Parkinson named a strong side on Wrexham’s return to Mansfield, with James McClean and Mullin both selected in the starting line-up. 

There was a space on the right for Anthony Forde, who returned to the side for the first time since September.

It was a fast-paced start at the One Call Stadium, with both teams looking for an immediate impact in the fixture – a far cry from last month's goalless draw. 

Andy Cannon, fresh from his impressive performance last weekend, started the match in a similar vein as he broke up play and unleashed a strike in the second minute. It drifted wide but provided an immediate warning to the hosts. 

Rhys Oates was the next to try his luck on goal, but Arthur Okonkwo was equal to the effort and made several crucial saves early on to negate the Stags’ threat. 

Dalby – who yet again was named as Mullin’s strike partner, looked inspired at the top-end of the pitch with some impressive build-up play in the opening stages of the match. 

The forward came close to giving the visitors the lead from inside the box after 18 minutes, but Mansfield goalkeeper Pym was excellent and produced an impressive low save to keep the scores level. 

Wrexham’s number 18 continued to push for a goal and quickly broke the deadlock in the 23rd minute with a ferocious strike into the roof of the net – leaving Pym with no chance after his previous save.  

Just seven minutes later, Pym produced more heroics, this time tipping Dalby’s powerful strike onto the bar after the forward was released through on goal brilliantly by Elliot Lee.  

Mansfield continued in their search of a leveller, but in truth, Nigel Clough’s side couldn’t find the finishing touch despite their efforts.  

With the first half coming to a close, both Lee and Mullin had chances for Phil Parkinson’s side to increase their advantage before the interval. 

They possibly might have done just that, had it not been for the impressive performance of Pym who continued to produce heroics at the One Call Stadium. 

The Stags bolted out of the gate in the second half and provided several tests which Okonkwo stood up to well throughout to ensure Wrexham’s slender lead remained intact in Nottinghamshire. 

And dDespite the early pressure from the hosts, Wrexham soon enough found an all-important second goal to extend their advantage on the road. 

Having claimed the 2022/23 Emirates FA Cup Golden Ball, Mullin opened his account in the competition this season after 59 minutes as he produced a cultured finish past Pym to send the away end into jubilation. 

The celebrations didn’t last long, however, as Mansfield found an almost instant response to Wrexham’s second goal. 

On the hour mark - almost immediately after kick-off, it was Rhys Oates who found the required finish to keep the game within Mansfield’s reach. 

Just a minute later, Mullin had the ball in the net again, lofting the ball over the head of Pym – only for the flag to be raised for offside. 

Cannon almost restored Wrexham’s two-goal lead, running onto the edge of the box to fire from distance, but his strike dragged wide of the post after 64 minutes. 

Both sides continued to battle for the next goal, as Mansfield really started to apply pressure on the visitors in hope of a goal to level the scores. 

As the match progressed and time started to run out, Parkinson’s side seemingly became more and more resilient as they attempted to grind out a result against the Stags. 

It was the Red Dragons’ spirit and resilience that saw them through a wave of Mansfield chances, as they held on and claimed a hard-fought win to continue their Emirates FA Cup journey.
