No changes for Stags at Accrington

Play-off chasing Mansfield Town sent out the same team that beat leaders Rochdale last week for today’s game at Accrington Stanley.

The only change came on the bench where battling midfielder Anthony Howell returned from a two-game ban to replace youngster Jack Thomas.

Stags were looking to win a fifth game on the bounce and gain revenge on a Stanley side that pipped them 3-2 with two stoppage time goals at One Call Stadium earlier this season.

A win would also keep alive Stags’ slender play-off ambitions.
