Mansfield Town made two enforced changes for tonight’s tricky FA Cup first round replay at Conference South Concord Rangers.
With the parent clubs of loanees Vadaine Oliver and Keiron Freeman not wishing them to become cup-tied, Palmer replaced Oliver up front while Liam Marsden came in at full back.
Otherwise caretaker boss Adam Murray stuck with the players that had done him proud in his first game with the 1-0 win over Plymouth on Saturday. He also named himself among the substitutes.
Good news today for Murray was that Crewe and Oliver have agreed to an extension of his loan and the player will now be with Stags until 19th January.
CONCORD: Vickers, Walker, Glozier, Woodyard, Lampe, Fry, Taaffe, White, Chiedozie, Collins, Cawley. Subs: King, Alexander, Miles, Stokes, Gardner, Ogilvie, Kabashi.
STAGS: Studer; Marsden, Riley, Tafazolli, Beevers; Clements, Sendles-White, Heslop; Lambe, Palmer, Taylor. Subs: Bell, Rhead, Bingham, Thomas, Waterfall, Murray, Bishop.
REFEREE: Andy Davies of Hampshire.
