Shaw Lane deserve full respect says Mansfield's Mellis

Mansfield Town midfielder Jacob Mellis is looking forward to Saturday's Emirates FA Cup First Round tie against Shaw Lane, but warns the Evo-Stik side deserve respect for their good run of form in 2017/18.

The 26-year-old former Chelsea youngster is excited for Saturday's clash with the Ducks in what will be, if selected, Mellis' first cup tie against non-league opposition.

"I'm excited for it. I've never had a tie like this before. I normally just get teams in the same league or whatever, so I'm looking forward to this tie," the ex-Bury man said.

"We've got to respect them, they'll respect us and it'll be a good cup tie, I think.

"They're winning most games so it's a good test for us and you know with the FA Cup, anyone can win, so we've got to respect them.

"We'll prepare the same way [as a league game], exactly the same. They're going to have some good players and on the day anyone can win, so we'll have to be on our toes."
