Mansfield Town v Sheffield Wednesday

Last updated: Tuesday, 05 October, 2021, 21:20

1-1. Wednesday cut open. Mansfield get a deserved equaliser.

And it’s a former Blade - Stephen Quinn - who pokes home.. and duly celebrates by running to the away end and falling to his knees.

60’ - Change is afoot..

Third and final change for Wednesday. Brown is on for Hunt. Brown is at left back. Johnson moves to the right.

55’ - Save, Wildsmith!

That’s a good save down low - it’s been all Mansfield so far. If they’re not lucky the League Two side could find themselves in the lead.

51’ - Mansfield re-start the brighter

..and Wednesday need to wake up. The strong, whistling wind is in their faces in this half.

49’ - Semedo chants ring around Mansfield

..the outpouring of support for the former Wednesday icon has been incredible.

Half-time changes, then..

Olamide Shodipo is on alongside Liam Palmer - Lewis Gibson and Saido Berahino off.

Joe Wildsmith - 6

Jack Hunt - 6

Chey Dunkley - 7

Lewis Gibson - 7

Marvin Johnson - 6

Lewis Wing - 5

Fisayo Dele-Bashiru - 6

Florian Kamberi - 5

Sylla Sow - 4

Theo Corbeanu - 7

Saido Berahino - 6

42’ - Just wide Stags..

They broke some ground there and got a shot away, but it was spun wide.

The best chance of the game, perhaps..
