Mansfield Town will be ball number 28 in tonight’s FA Cup second round draw, which can be seen live on BBC2 at 7pm.

The Stags edged into the draw thanks to a hard-earned 1-0 home win over National League bottom side Chorley on Saturday, Nicky Maynard grabbing the all-important 81st minute winner.

Tonight’s draw will be conducted at Oaklands Park, the home ground of Chichester City - the lowest-ranked club left in the competition - by Dion Dublin and Mark Bright.

The second round is scheduled for the weekend of Saturday, 30th November with winning clubs receiving £54,000 from The FA prize fund, Stags having already pocketed £36,000 for Saturday’s win.

Still in the hat are big guns like Sunderland and Portsmouth, local rivals Notts County and minnows like Chichester and Maldon and Tiptree.

A full report on how Stags fare in the draw will be on the Chad web site after 7.
