MANSFIELD INCREASE CAPACITY

Mansfield Town have increased the capacity of their Field Mill home by more than 1,000 for their FA Cup game with Liverpool.

The Blue Square Premier club overcame Lincoln City to set up their third round tie with the Premier League giants and they have decided to increase the amount of people allowed into their ground.

The stadium's previous capacity was 6,800 but it will now be able to house 7,888 supporters for next month's money-spinning fixture.
