There was a surprise in the Mansfield Town side this afternoon as recent signing Billy Kee was left out of the side for the big six-pointer at fellow strugglers Carlisle United.

Kee hasn’t looked fully fit since arriving, but was getting better game by game.

Stags were also without midfielder Chris Clements who has failed to receive from illness in time.

In came Reggie Lambe and Simon Heslop. There was also a place on the bench for teenage youth team midfielder Joe Fitzpatrick.
