Once again Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray shuffled his pack for today’s trip to AFC Wimbledon, making five changes for the third successive game.

The loanee trio of keeper Dimitar Evtimov, defender Keiron Freeman and winger Junior Brown, who were all not allowed to play in the midweek FA Cup defeat by Cambridge, returned to the side.

Midfielder Jamie McGuire and striker Matt Rhead were also given a start.

Those changes saw Sascha Studer, Rakish Bingham, Ollie Palmer, and Simon Heslop drop to the bench and Lee Beevers left out of the squad.

Stags began the day four games without a win.

AFC WIMBLEDON: Shea, Fuller, Kennedy, Moore, Barrett, Goodman, Rigg, Bulman, Akinfenwa, Tubbs, Francomb. Subs: McDonnell, Pell, Harrison, Nightingale, Sutherland, Oakley, Azeez.
STAGS: Evtimov; Sutton, Tafazolli, Waterfall, Freeman; Brown, Clements, McGuire, Taylor; Rhead, Oliver. Subs: Studer, Riley, Bell, Bingham, Palmer, Heslop, Lambe.
REFEREE: Darren Deadman of Cambridgshire.
