C:WindowsTempphp74A7.tmpNeil Warnock says he will field his strongest side possible when Cardiff face Mansfield in the FA Cup 3rd replay at Field Mill on Tuesday.

The boss think it will be "a good old-fashioned FA Cup tie" as the teams fight to secure a home 4th round tie against Manchester City

"They (Man City) are probably the best team in the world at the moment so it's fabulous for Mansfield and ourselves," he told BBC Wales.

"I think it makes for a better second game anyhow with so much at stake.

"There'll be a great atmosphere - no disrespect to our fans, but 6,000 in our stadium was really a low-key afternoon atmosphere-wise.

"At Mansfield our fans will make themselves heard and Mansfield will probably fill their side so it should be a good old-fashioned FA Cup tie."

Warnock would like to pit himself against Pep Guardiola's runaway Premiership leaders, and will name as "strong a team as I can" against Mansfield.

*Tickets are on sale from the Cardiff City ticket office and online from 10am on Thursday 11th, January.
