Blackburn or Mansfield to win as the League Cup bid begins on Tuesday at the One Call Stadium?

Then again, which is more than possible of course, it could be a draw!

But what we do know is, one way or another, we will have a winner on the night.

This 7:45pm kick-off will see Blackburn look to avoid an upset against League 2 side Mansfield, Rovers also look for a reaction to the four-on hammering against Norwich at Ewood Park to start the Championship season.

Mansfield will host Blackburn quietly confident of claiming the Rovers scalp but as much as Owen Coyle’s priorities might lie elsewhere he’ll know even at this early stage of his spell as boss a defeat to the Stags isn’t going to do him too many favours.
