Mansfield Town made four changes for this afternoon’s visit of in-form Accrington Stanley.

Keeper Dimitar Evtimov has been nursing a slight groin injury so he dropped down to the bench and Sascha Studer was brought back in.

Keiron Freeman, back for a second loan spell with Stags from Derby, went straight in at left wing, back, Lee Beevers moving across to right wing back and Liam Marsden dropped to the bench.

In midfield there were two changes as Fergus Bell, despite his injured shoulder, came back in along with Jamie McGuire, Reggie Lambe and Simon Heslop making way.

Stags were looking for a first league win against Accrington in seven outings and revenge for last season when Stanley produced stoppage time goals home and away to take four points when Mansfield looked to have victories in the bag.
