Stags boss Cox rings the changes as promised for York clash

Mansfield Town boss Paul Cox kept his promise to rest players and freshen things up for tonight’s home clash with York City as he made four changes.

Martin Riley came in for injured central defender Ritchie Sutton while James Jennings took over from Junior Daniel at left wing back.

Jamie McGuire replaced Saturday’s hero Anthony Howell in central midfield while Sam Clucas dropped back into the hole behind the strikers to allow Lindon Meikle to come in and partner Matt Rhead up front.

York included defender John McCombe, who had been with Stags until the turn of the year.

STAGS: Marriott; Dempster, Tafazolli, Riley; Westlake, McGuire, Clucas, Murray, Jennings; Rhead, Meikle. Subs: Stevenson, Dyer, Beevers, Clements, Cain, Daniel, Palmer.

YORK: Pope, Oyebanjo, Davies, Coulson, Penn, Carson, Lowe, McCombe, Bowman, Hayhurst, Reed. Subs: McGurk, Fletcher, Jarvis, Montrose, Platt, Ingham, Puri.

REFEREE: Darren Drysdale of Lincolnshire.
