Mansfield Town today revealed that midfield ace Chris Clements will miss the rest of the season.

Clements limped out of Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Hartlepool United with an injured hamstring and boss Adam Murray this morning said: “That’s probably Clem’s season done.

“He went for a scan yesterday and the results were not good.

“Chris is going to be a massive loss to us, but hamstrings are hamstrings and if they go, they go.

“It may mean bringing some of the kids in and having a look at them, we are down to 17 or 18 players now.

“We can reshuffle. We’ve got one or two bodies with which we can maybe change the shape and try one or two things.

“We might bring in one or two from the youth team, who are flying.”

Stags head to Carlisle United this weekend looking to end a run of seven games without a win.
