STAGS were boosted ahead of today’s crucial BSBP play-off semi-final second leg at One Call Stadium when centre half Martin Riley declared himself fit.
Riley limped out of the midweek 1-1 first leg draw at York with a hamstring strain and said on Thursday he hoped to be fit for a potential Wembley final.
So Stags fans were delighted to see Riley trot out with the side this afternoon in a team showing just one change, Louis Briscoe coming in for the suspended Matt Green.
STAGS: Marriott; O’Neill, Riley, Geohaghon, Sutton; Murray, Howell, Roberts; Briscoe, Dyer, Meikle. Subs: Redmond, Thompson, Stevenson, Rhead, Andrew.
YORK: Ingham, Oyebanjo, Meredith, Smith, Parslow, Walker, Chambers, Blair, Challinor, Doig, McLaughlin. Subs: Musselwhite, Reed, Potts, Fyfield, Moke.
REFEREE: Andy Davies of Southampton.
