Squads: Slough | Mansfield Town

Slough Town boss Steve Bateman has a fully-fit squad to select from as his minnows prepare for one of the biggest games in their history.

The Rebels host Mansfield of the Blue Square Premier at Holloways Park in their FA Cup first round replay after a 0-0 draw at Field Mill earlier this month and Bateman has no injuries and suspension worries after Saturday's morale-boosting result.

Slough warmed up for the replay in fine style with a thumping 6-1 victory over Ashford Town (Middx) with Danny Burnell grabbing a hat-trick.

The Evo-Stick Southern League Central Division side, the lowest ranked club left in the competition, defended superbly to earn a replay and are expected to be backed by close to 1000 supporters.

Leading scorer Jake Speight could be ready to return to the Mansfield starting XI.

Speight, with six goals to his name this season, missed two matches through suspension and then a knee injury before he made his comeback as a second half substitute during the 1-0 league win at home to Southport on Saturday.

Stags boss Paul Cox would have to decide whether he replaced Nick Wright, goalscorer in the 1-1 draw at Nuneaton last Tuesday, or weekend match-winner Ben Hutchinson in the side.

With Shane Redmond the only goalkeeper available, Cox may look to promote either Jordan Fell or Ryan Hopkins from the youth team to act as back-up for the first-round replay.
