Mansfield Town look set to be without winger Junior Brown for the visit of Bury on Saturday.

Brown damaged a hamstring during Saturday’s 1-1 draw at Cheltenham Town and the Stags are hoping it won’t sideline him for too long.

His absence will see Brighton loanee Jeffrey Monakana get another chance to show what he can do.

Manager Adam Murray said: “Junior went to close someone down on Saturday and just felt it and signalled to us that he was struggling.

“It is a big blow for us. He will have a scan today and we will know more from that, but hopefully it won’t be too bad.

“But Jeffrey Monakana can come in and do a very good job for us.”
