The youth team take on Mansfield Town this lunchtime in a rearranged league fixture with their Nottinghamshire rivals.

The match will take place at Clipstone FC with kick-off at 1pm and follows the 2-1 win over Rotherham United on Saturday.

Speaking ahead of the match youth team coach Mark Smith said the approach to the derby game was consistent with any other match.

"We have prepared for this as we have for any other match. There's no difference and while we are looking forward to it we're looking forward to it not because it's Mansfield and it's a derby but because it's a chance for us to get three points.

"The players do realise that it's got a slightly different edge to the game but there's not much difference in the mood among the squad.

"What I do get is that it's another game they're looking forward to as it's off the back of some good results and good performances. Now they're eager to go out and see if they can build on what they've been doing."
