Two changes as Stags game goes ahead at Exeter

The Mansfield Town side showed two changes for today’s League Two clash at Exeter City in the storm-hit West Country.

Adam Murray was dropped to the bench with Lee Stevenson coming in to play behind the front pair and Anthony Howell moving deeper in a holding role.

In defence it was a straight swap with John Dempster in for the injured Martin Riley.

Despite worries about the game, after the pitch was waterlogged in midweek, and further rain before kick-off, the playing area was fine for play.
