Out of a mainly healthy group of players, there is only a single fitness problem for the Mansfield Town boss Graham Coughlan to contend with. Joe Riley (Cruciate Ligament Injury) won’t be in action.
It’s looking like Mansfield Town and Morecambe may well find themselves both scoring in what promises to be a very even battle here.
Let’s see how this one goes, but it looks this could be a draw. We therefore think that it’s going to be a close game with a 1-1 score at the conclusion of the game.
