Ben Hutchinson returned to the Mansfield Town side for tonight’s mouthwatering FA Cup second round replay at home to Oldham Athletic – with a trip to Anfield beckoning for the winners.
Hutchinson came in to replace Anthony Howell and play just behind central striker Ross Dyer for the big game, being televised live on BT Sports.
There was also a welcome return on the bench of Louis Briscoe.
The sides drew 1-1 at Boundary Park two Saturdays back with Sam Clucas notching the Mansfield equaliser.
