Mansfield Town made three changes to the side for tonight’s long trip to Yeovil Town.

Scott Shearer began the night in goal in place of the injured Jake Kean, though Stags will have been delighted to hear that scans and X-rays have revealed only bone bruising and he should be within the next fortnight.

Also out went striker Pat Hoban and midfielder Jamie McGuire, replaced by right back Hayden White, back from a one-game ban, and midfielder Alex MacDonald, playing a more attacking role for the night to back up Shaq Coulthirst.

Skipper Lee Collins moved back into a defensive midfield role to allow White to return to full back.

Strike pair Danny Rose and Matt Green were not risked with slight injuries.

YEOVIL: Krysiak, Shephard, Dolan, Mugabi, Lacey, Dawson, Lawless, Dickson, Zoko, Whitfield, Harrison. Subs: Maddison, James, Butcher, Goodship, Akpa Akpro, Eaves, Sowunmi.

STAGS: Shearer, White, Bennett, Pearce, Benning, Collins, Whiteman, Byron, Hamilton, MacDonald, Coulthirst. Subs: Jensen, Baxendale, Potter, McGuire, Arquin, Hemmings, Hoban.

REFEREE: Christopher Sarginson of Staffordshire.
