Mansfield Town were shorn of the services of striker Matt Green for tonight’s trip to Accrington Stanley.

Green’s back had stiffened up after the 2-0 derby win at Notts County on Friday and boss Adam Murray decided to leave him out as he was only said to be ‘99 per cent fit’ and save him for the weekend.

In came Chris Beardsley for the only change to the side.

Accrington included striker Billy Kee, who was on loan at Mansfield last season.

ACCRINGTON STANLEY: Mooney, Pearson, Winnard, Davies, Mingoia, Windass, McConville, Crooks, Buxton, Conneely, Kee. Subs: Etheridge, Barry, Morgan, Gornell, Wakefield, Wright, Bruna.

STAGS: Jensen, Benning, Rose, Pearce, Chapman, Clements, Beardsley, Nathan Thomas, Tafazolli, Hunt, Lambe. Subs: Marsden, Westcarr, Yussuf, Jack Thomas, McGuire, Caton, Fitzpatrick.

REFEREE: Darren England of South Yorkshire.
