Stags didn’t have the best of start to the day after discovering they had forgotten their kit for today’s League two clash at Torquay United.
The Gulls offered the lend them their away kit if the Mansfield one didn’t arrive in time, the club trying to speed it down to Devon before kick-off.
Mansfield made three changes to the side.
Matt Rhead replaced Calvin Andrew up front, Jamie McGuire returned from a one game suspension to replace Anthony Howell in midfield, and James Jennings took over from Junior Daniel.
Jack Blake, signed on a month’s loan from Forest this morning, had to be content with a place on the bench.
TORQUAY: Rice, Tongue, Nicholson, Pearce, Mansell, Hawley, Bodin, Chapell, McCourt, Azeez, O’Connor. Subs: Lathrope, Cameron, Craig, Cruise, Benyon, Sullivan, Lavercombe.
STAGS: Marriott, Sutton, Dempster, Riley; Beevers, McGuire, Stevenson, Murtagh, Jennings; Rhead, Clucas. Subs: Daniel, Howell, Hutchinson, Meikle, Palmer, Andrew, Blake.
REFEREE: Mick Russell of Hertfordshire.
