Mansfield Town have sold striker Danny Rose to League One newcomers Northampton Town after four years at the One Call Stadium.
The 26 year old striker had dropped down the pecking order since Graham Coughlan took charge in December 2019 with the former Barnsley youngster not featuring in any of the Stags league squads this season.
Rose who’s contract was set to expire in June 2021 scored 44 goals in 165 appearances for Mansfield following his move from Bury where he was at between 2014-2016.
Mansfield are in league action at Newport this weekend as the side look for their first league win of the season. The Stags currently lie in 18th position in League Two with two draws and a defeat from their three games whilst their Welsh opponents are high flying in third with two wins and a draw.
James Perch is likely to return to the squad after missing out last weekend’s defeat at home to Exeter whilst Joe Riley is the only major absentee with a long term cruciate ligament injury.
Last season it was a Danny Rose goal that separated the sides at Field Mill in the last match played between the two sides. This season it certainly won’t be the same scorer but a similar outcome would do the Mansfield players good as they look to climb the table and away from any early season danger at the foot of the table.
The match at Rodney Parade is behind closed doors but available through iFollow on the Stags website with kick off 3pm.
