Adi Yusssuf will be hoping for a rare start on Saturday when Mansfield Town must face Morecambe without suspended top scorer Matt Green, who was sent off for two bookable offences at Crawley.

“Sometimes these things happen and there is always a plus point from these situations,” said Murray.

“It gives Greeny a chance to have a rest. He probably needs a bit of a breather. He has worked his socks off all season and has probably only missed a couple of games. So it’s not the end of the world.

“We are limited in our options there. Obviously we’ve not long had Adi back from injury, so we will have to weigh up if he’s ready to start. With what he has done as a sub, he’s probably warranted a start.

“Centre forward wise we’ve only got two options. We might be able to tweak things around, but the way we’ve played the last couple of games we don’t really want to change things too much. So we’ll have to have a look at it over the week.”
