Mansfield Town’s hotly anticipated FA Cup Replay with Cardiff City will NOT be shown on TV.

Manager Steve Evans called it ‘I’d be very surprised if the TV Camera’s didn’t want to show it’ shortly after the news broke regarding the winner of the replay facing Manchester City, but it turns out that BT Sport or the BBC aren’t interested in romantic FA Cup stories.

The beeb are showing the Chelsea v Norwich City replay from the 3rd round, in which the original game went down as one of the worst ever FA Cup ties.

The game with Cardiff City will be played on Tuesday 16th January with a 19:45 kick off time.

Cup fever hit the town as tickets went on sale today with large queues forming by mid afternoon, with the potential for ticket stubs to be saved and used for ticket priority for the Manchester City tie, should the Stags go through.

The club have said that an announcement will be made shortly in regards to that.
