Not surprisingly Mansfield Town boss Adam Murray made wholesale changes for this afternoon’s tough game away to promotion-chasing Southend United.

Murray was livid after last week’s 4-1 home capitulation against York City so out went Rakish Bingham, Billy Kee, Jamie McGuire, Michael Raynes and Ryan Tafazolli.

In came Ritchie Sutton, Reggie Lambe, Terry Hawkridge, Ricky Ravenhill and Simon Heslop.

SOUTHEND UNITED: Bentley, White, Coker, Thompson, Timlin, Corr, Atkinson, Leonard, McLaughlin, Barrett, Pigott. Subs: Smith, Weston, Bolger, Payne, Deegan, Binnom-Williams, Cassidy.
STAGS: Pidgeley; Beevers, Sutton, Riley, Elder; Heslop, Ravenhill, Clements; Lambe, Oliver, Hawkridge. Subs: Studer, Tafazolli, Fisher, McGuire, Rhead, Bingham, Thomas.
REFEREE: Stephen Martin of Staffordshire.
