Once again, Mansfield Town manager Paul Cox tweaked his starting line-up for today’s massive game at struggling Barrow.
Cox brought back Lee Stevenson into midfield and Louis Briscoe on the wing in place of Adam Chapman and Lindon Meikle.
After having their 12-game winning streak ended at Wrexham on Thursday night, Mansfield were up against a side they blasted 8-1 at home just a few weeks back.
Stags began the day a point adrift of leaders Kiddedrminster Harriers, who were at home to Lincoln City today, with two games in hand on the Harriers and just four games left to play after today.
