Mansfield Town gave a debut to loanee Brighton & Hove Albion winger Jeffrey Monakana in their League Two clash at relegation rivals Oxford United this afternoon.

The former Arsenal trainee has joined the club for an initial month.

He came in for the injured Reggie Lambe, who limped off with a hamstring problem in Tuesday night’s sparkling 1-0 win over Luton Town.

It was the only change as Adam Murray kept faith with the players who served him so well for a second game against one of his former clubs in five days.
