Dyer back for Stags at Pompey

Ross Dyer replaced Ollie Palmer up front as Stags took on Richie Barker’s Portsmouth at Fratton Park this afternoon.

It was the only change to the side that lost 2-0 at home to Scunthorpe. That meant Martin Riley and Jamie McGuire, both fit again after injury, could only make the bench.

It also meant no new players still for Stags in the transfer window while the home side had four in their starting 11 and another on the bench.
