Top goalscorer Danny Rose is out of tonight’s League Two match with Salford City at Field Mill in what will be the first time the two teams have met in the Football League.
Rose who has seven goals this season is expected to be out for up to six weeks after injuring his ankle in training last Thursday and he joins long term absentee Craig Davies whilst Jordan Graham and Jacob Mellis will also miss the game through injury.
Hayden White is suspended but Ryan Sweeney returns after missing out on the weekends draw with Forest Green Rovers following a one match ban.
The Stags currently lie a place above Salford in 17th with both teams on 17 points from 14 matches played, the Manchester based outfit having lost last time out against Northampton Town will be without Liam Hogan whilst Richie Towell, Jack Baldwin and Chris Neal are all doubts for Manager Graham Alexander.
Kick off at Field Mill is 7:45pm with tickets still available to purchase.
