Mansfield Town are hopeful striker Kane Hemmings will be fit for Saturday’s crucial final game at home to Crawley Town.

Stags need to win to stand any chance of making the play-offs and Oxford United loanee Hemmings has been in good form of late.

“We have just got to take a precaution with Hemmo,” said manager David Flitcroft

“He took a bit of a knock on his thigh in the later stages of the game at Yeovil on Saturday.

“We will just get some upper body work into him instead of training plus a little bit of light CV work and hopefully have him back for tomorrow.”

Hayden White and Ricky Miller are both making good progress on hamstring injuries, though won’t be risked if there is any doubt.

“We are hoping to have them both on the grass towards the back end of the week,” said Flitcroft.

“There is a chance they might make the bench if they can get up to full sprinting speed.”
